thevintagesurfboard.com gives back: early 80’s twin fin by McCoy, The See + Sprout Project and Costa Verde International School

 

This is a classic piece of surfing history – an early 80’s twin fin by McCoy.  

I sold this perfect condition ride on Ebay last November and donated all proceeds  to The See + Sprout. The See + Sprout Project is an international creative collective created to support victims of the 2004 Asian tsunami in Thailand.

In  December 2008 I donated my time to the project as they headed off to Sayulita, Mexico.  The See and Sprout Team did photography workshops  with students from Costa Verde International School, Mexico’s first green school.  www.seeandsprout.com
