Another Tris from the tip

 Another nice Tris rescued from the tip. This is the fourth Tris saved from there in the last few years, and like most of the others its far too good to throw away. The underside has a few scrapes but the deck is perfect, and its a nice Hillsey shape from around 1981 with double flyers , and an unusually raked back fin.
I must sound like a regular Stig of the dump , but its not got that bad - theres an outlet near me that sells stuff rescued from there. Dimensions are 6'3 x 19 3/4.
Up in Devon the surfing museum has recently got a couple of beauties which were bound for the tip ,  the Bill Bailey longboard and Bickers paipo.




 The cat approves
