Heat Wave by J.T.Pellow

 Very cool Heat Wave shaped in Cornwall by J.T.Pellow in the early 80s (possibly near Porthleven ? Not much info is available on Heatwaves) . Its in perfect condition, having been bought by a 50 year old lady from new and then stored in her attic propping up her tv aerial !
Single flyer going into a rounded swallow tail, and with a vicious pointy spear of a nose, this is a nicely finished board with cool linear spray on the underside, very 80s arcade game. It also has a v bottom which is a bit different. 6'3 x 20 x 2 3/4 , with Clark foam super light blank.
