The good thing about this blog is that. We have the chance to know very nice people and exchange a few stoke emails with some of the followers.
Mitch had mentioned at some point that he grew up in Australia in relatively isolated Tasmania, started surfing at 12 in empty lineups on a mystery purple psychedelic reverse swallow twin with green glass fins and a diving wetsuit.
I have asked him to o dig up that photo and where he is in Tasmania circa 1983, 12 years old with his first fish surfboard. He have no clue about who made this purple board...please let us know if you suspect of anyone.
