Haven singlefin

Classic old Haven from Alex's collection, dating from the early 70s. Haven were based in Bude and were sold from the Surf Spot surf shop there. This one is made with Rolow foam, which I think was a local blank maker.
The board has an unusual orange area on the nose, not the sort of design you see a lot of from that era. More like something you might see on some small label custom boards today. It also has a nice green pinline and diamond around the fin - sometimes evidence that a fin has been reset and the repair hidden.
This is possibly one of the earliest Havens I have seen. They were definitely producing in 1973 because they advertise in Surf Insight magazine as 'Styx by Haven' as written below.

Thanks to Alex for the sunny photos !
