Vitamin Sea singlefin

 This is Martin's beautiful Vitamin sea singlefin, shaped by Tad around 1980. The airbrush is by Andy Cranston - a simple concept of repetition which looks amazing. Andy did a few boards like this mainly in 1981, see Vit Sea ad below. The board looks to be in great condition too . Singlefins were still very popular over here in the late 70s and early 80s.

Back row is Chris Jones, Andy Cranston, Tad Ciastula.
 Another Vit Sea from the same year, this time shaped by CJ , with some micro channels and big keely star fins. Spray again by Andy Cranston. A really cool little board.

 Another Vitamin Sea twinny, made a year or so later . Not sure on the shaper but artwork by Andy again. In the early 80s Vit Sea along with Ocean Magic were the big manufacturers in Newquay.
