Freedom surfboards film from 1985





This is a gem of a film shot in 1985 telling the story of Steve Harewood and Freedom surfboards, and also starring Bobby Male and Arlene Maltman. Theres some great footage from the 60s and 80s , and also Carwyn ripping at the pro am at the end of the film (orange and green board ).
If the sound doesnt work for the first couple of minutes dont worry it will come.

 Thanks to Gordon for sending in photos of his lovely 6'5 Freedom shaped by Steve Harewood in the mid 70s. Great spray and pinlining on it , and an unusual lightning bolt for a Freedom. The bird symbol on the bottom was usually used for their boards which went to the Freedom shop in Biarritz.

  1. Great footage! The shop looked like it was mid 80's with the fashion and that water definately looked cold!
