    Hi Steve,

    The Sebastion Inlets and Outer Banks were very similar. Were they both made at Lightwave?

    Hi Steve,
    This comes a few years late, but I was wondering who did the airbrush work for the Sebastian Inlet and Outer Banks boards. They were beautiful boards.

    Awesome board I’ve been trying to locate my late uncles old red lightning bolt board that he bought at the inlet surf shop in the 70s. It was traded in at spectrum surf shop by a family member in indialantic florida in the early nineties and they displayed it there for sometime. I went looking for it but it was gone. This was the board I learned to surf on and would love to discuss with you possibly purchasing it and giving it a good home.

    I had a Sebastian Inlet 8 ft board tri fin with a rounded nose, fairly thin rails and glass-on fins back in the early to mid 90’s. That board ripped! The fins hummed at speed tho…lol. Would love to find a board like that again.
