Roger Cooper singlefin

 Simon has sent in photos of his great condition Roger Cooper 6ft singlefin from around 1979/80. This looks a fun board to ride and probably rides much the same as the day it was made, it looks hardly used. It has a classic tropical scene logo (or mabye its Wales on a really good day !) by artist Kevin Russ. Roger has been making boards in South Wales since the 70s and is one of the local legends. This looks great for summer swells at Simon's local Fistral . Beautiful fin too !

Kevin Russ also did the logo design for the first Vitamin Sea boards in the late 70s
