As Skydog told it: This photo was taken by my good friend Don Perez, Dec ’68, Bolsa Chica Santa Ana day. We’d both just returned from a couple of months in Puerto Rico. Experienced the “evolution” of changes goin on in surfboard design, Aussie approach, and took in the World Contest. Gettin to know and surf with Nat, Wayne and Ted Spencer. Hours discussing board design and fins. Built this particular model at Creative Design, but they weren’t into fin development. Took the board over to Plastic Fantastic where I was working before the Puerto Rico trip. After replacing the box system with a glass on fin, thinning and foiling the fin to Nat’s specs, the board became one of the best boards on the West Coast.
