Ocean Magic by Pete McAllum dump find
Alex has sent in these photos of this lovely late 70s twin fin made by Moony at Ocean Magic. The board was saved from the dump a few years ago by a mate of Alex's. Its a classic early OM twin fin, much like what OM team rider Steve Daniel was riding at the time. Beautiful attention to detail in the pinlining, and US star fins. Im glad it has been preserved and not hit the landfill ! Dimensions are 6'3 x 21 1/2 .
