Windjammer singlefin early 80s

 This is a great condition singlefin by Windjammer , from around '83  and made in Braunton ,North Devon . It could be inspired by the needle nose Lazor Zaps which Cheyne Horan made famous at the time, although his boards were often alot wider at the tail . The Windjammer has had a lot of time spent on the pinlining and airbrushing and is a real work of art. The tailpad is from later in the 80s. Dims are 5'8 x 20 1/2 x 2 3/4 .

 Windjammer was run by Clive Lewis and Alan Brookes (ex Tiki and Chapter) . It ran from the mid 70s till the mid/late 80s ? By the start of the 80s they were only making a few custom boards , but produced alot of popouts and windsurfers .
