Here's a classic Cheyne Horan model 5'8 which Gee has just picked up off Andy . It is an early one , no.4 made, and very similar to my no.2 , both probably made in late 1981.
Cheyne was riding a similar looking board at the Gul - Alder pro am that summer in Newquay ( where he came 1st = with Rabbit) so Chris Jones would have had first hand experience of the shape and design and may have taken direct measurements from it . Chris' boss Tad Ciastula set up the Cheyne Horan model deal with Cheyne probably during the contest period in summer '81 . Chris was the main Vit Sea shaper making the Cheyne models , producing around 60 of them from 1981 to 83. As time went on the sprays got more radical, mirroring Cheyne's personal boards , and although some of CJ's were singlefins most were twin fins.
