1980’s Miami Vice Quad Fin by Brian Bulkley





A Miami Vice era and influced quad fin by Brian Bulkley. The board is in excellent condition and one of my favorite California 80’s boards. I first discovered Bulkley boards back in the 80’s in San Clemente.  Bulkley still shapes his boards by hand and has a great Quad Fin Disk.

Turbo Fin Quad by Randy French circa 1984




This rare Randy French Turbo Quad fin surfboard was estimated to be shaped around 1984. I’ve ridden it a few times and it’s fast and loose.  I had many guys asking if they could ride it or wanted to sell it – not a chance.  Randy French is the owner of Surftech epoxy surfboards.

1980’s Town and Country Tri-Fin 6’0″ X 20″ 2 3/4″




Another Town and Country favorite from the mid 1980’s. This board is in great condition with only a few dings. As you can see, the artwork is the defintion of 80’s style and design.  I love these “bright” boards now, but ironically, I woundn’t been caught dead surfing one of them as a teenager in the 80’s.
