Dick van Straalen Flyer Swallowtail

Item # 000254

This little flyer swallowtail was shaped by van Straalen for none other than the late Mark Foo back in the late '70s! When Mark visited the Gold Coast he went straight to Dick to order a quiver of single fins, as he has always been one of the top shapers in this area!

There's great footage of Foo surfing here in a couple of movies and one that I recall is Greg Huglin's Fantasea, and all his boards are from that batch by van Straalen and all with similar colour combos.

This one is 6' x 19 1/2" and has a textured deck for extra lightness.

Condition
Very good deck but plenty of battle scars on the bottom from surfing spots like Burleigh! All dings are repaired. The bottom was originally a pale pink that has totally faded out!

Comment
A rare piece of surfing history that comes with a letter of authenticity from Dick van Straalen.
