This rare and old piece of film reel was given to Shaun Boundy at the Trebarwith surf shop and he has transferred it to disc to preserve it. It shows summer in Cornwall in the inter war period and glimpses of bellyboarding at Trebarwith strand beach. At 0.34 it shows a guy at Bossiney beach holding one of the very early bellyboards made of planks, usually bought from the local coffin maker. At 2.30 they are trying bellyboarding on a much more familiar board, which hasn't changed for almost 100 years in basic design and will be seen a plenty at the Bellyboarding Worlds this sunday.

firstname.lastname@example.org . As you can see it was signed again by Terry Fitz in 2007.
Here's some more history on it - The board was shaped on his way back from the hawaiian winter season of 70/71.He'd been staying with dick brewer in the spring on Kauai before stopping off in california on his way home. That season was when Alby falzon was filming the surfing of terry for morning of the earth. And if you look carefully at the hawaiian footage terry is holding a 2+1 in one of the shots. When you look at it in the flesh the board is incredibly advanced for 1971 and with 3 fins is still 10 years before simon anderson's thruster................
