80s Freedom quad by Bobby Male

Stephane from Biarritz has sent in some photos of his 80s Freedoms and heres one of em, a 5'8 quad fin shaped by Bobby Male in the early 80s. Thats a really classic 80s spray on the deck, pastel colours meets fluoro yellow, looks great. Bobby was a top surfer shaper for Freedom since the mid 70s, and was British champ twice and Euro champ once. More Freedoms coming up soon, adjust your sets for some bright colours.

  1. hi, i just recently bought a 80s freedom surfboard shaped by bobby male, yellow with quad fins excellent condition for age and as far i have been told quite rare. It does have some competition stickers on it, jersey ones! Is there anything anyone can tell me about the board or bobby.

  2. Bobby Male lives in Northern N.S.W now. Met him there in 2011. Not sure when he left Jersey.
