FOR SALE- a rare Al Atkins (trigger bros shaped) twin fin.
I have some correspondence from Al about this board in the email below. I would be looking at $450.00 for the board. The condition is pretty good, just needs a few touch ups. Both fins are double foiled, so it is quite an early one& as Alan says there aren't many around.

Thanks for the email.After my sponsorship as a competitor with Dive and Surf in Torquay [Fred Pyke] stopped, I was then sponsored by Trigger Bros. from the East Coast. All my boards which I used in contests were made by them until about 1985 when Howard Hughes [my good mate from Airey's Inlet] offered to shape me boards. I stayed with Howard until he shut his shop last year.I sold quite a few boards for the first few years with Triggers directly from home at Anglesea and they had an "old english" writing sticker "alan atkins surfboards" made up for them.I cant recollect the board unfortunately. I designed my boards but didn't shape them personally. Mostly I sold boards off the ones I was riding at the time.I only rode twin fins for a short time and when thrusters appeared I moved over to them. My surfing is strong on the back foot and the thrusters gave me move drive.There certainly wont be many of those around!Its funny, sometimes I wonder where my old boards have all gone these days as well.Regards,Alan Atkins
