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.

 Similar Heatwave featured on the blog a few years ago from Myles' collection

  1. I came across an old heatwave at a garage sale in Ontario Canada. They said it came from New Zealand. Cannot find much info on it. 6' 3" with three fins. Seams to be fiber glass over foam? Anybody want to contact me with some info? I can send pics. Thanks.
