French Vitamin Sea twinny

Stephane from Biarritz has sent in photos of his new find - a board which quite a few people seem to be searching for these days - a good condition early 80s Vit Sea. This one was found over in France when Stephane was visiting Brittany, and could have spent its whole life in France, not that its been surfed much .
Classic 80s spray in unusual green with pinstripes on the deck and circles with individually done vit sea logos on the underside. The shape is classic Chris Jones with double flyers into swallow tail ,5'9 x 20 1/2  with G&S Star fins. It would have been made around 1982 at the factory in Newquay.
Thanks to Stephane for the photos
