Bernies Spear

Just popped this retro spear out for Porthleven's own Gerry Lopez...Bernie Robinson - based on his favourite board that was shaped by Mutley back in the 80's - took the original template, rocker and foil but modernised the rails...V throughout most of the board with a little roll up front and double concave cut through the V. Glasswork is double 6oz deck single 6oz bottom with opaque resin sanded to matt finishThe fins are hand folied from ply and then glassed...but not before a bit of laser etching to make tham that little bit more special...I would like to say watch out for it the next time the swell hits but when I delivered it on Friday I found him almost minus a big toe thanks to a stone saw encounter...
