Bob Warry

 Guernsey surfing legend  Bob Warry has sadly passed away . Bob was a Guernsey champion in 1966, '68 and '71 and maker of  the rare and very interesting Blade surfboards in the early 70s. There is more about Bob's surfing history here - http://vintagesurfboardcollectoruk.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/blade-surfboards-of-guernsey.html .


Paddle out for Bob held at Vazon bay. Blade surfboards from sheds and garages all around were dusted off and paddled out in his honour.
There is more about Bob on his son Phil's blog -  www.funautical.blogspot.com
