    Original Mark Burridge Surfboard. This is possibly a collectors item, It is in excellent condition and has original Mark Burridge Designs.
    Its a 7 foot gun that was shaped in 1993 for an unknown rider called Joe. Mark believes he may have shaped the board for the famous hairdresser to the stars Joh Bailey but cannot recollect for certain. The board is in excellent condition, has a carbon fibre deck grip and a rubber mermaid on the tip. Mark has shaped the board with a foot mould at the top of the grip for give the boardrider extra hold. The board has Rail stringers and is extremely light weight. There are many features to this board that you must experience in person to understand its worth.
