The Hustler

Cool old Surfboards Great Britain made for 'the Hustler' . Whether he was a hustler in the water, on the pool table or with the ladies is anyones guess. The wording is all original and under the glass; mabye Tim Heyland at Tiki might remember. Surfboards GB was part of Tiki, made in north Devon at Tim's Tiki factory. This one is early 70s, with one of the imported waveset fins (this one has been made even narrower). The board is 6'5 x 21 with mild s-deck, and lovely acid wash on the bottom which sweeps you into a trippy vortex. Far out...
Anyway its yet another piece of classic early 70s UK boardbuilding, on a sought after label. If you're The Hustler write in.
