I had a couple of these but I dont think I ever saw the 'custom' boards. especially the 'speed' board. I notice they had disappeared out of the 1988-9 brochure, so I guess they didn't sell? Or perhaps the manufacture didn't work out if they suncontracted it to someone?

These came from Sail Wind Quarterly Magazine Volume Three Number One, 1986. According to a reliable source Dave Sheen came first in the 1986 Ledge to Lancelin riding a Tyronsea Proto maybe it was one of these...

Nice!!

Yes, that could well be. But I don't recall seeing any of those either.

Sailquik, My original source may have been wrong. Another source has a different version of events. He says to the effect that Dave Sheen actually rode a Cobra Gun 290 for the first Ledge to Lancelin race in 1986, he only got it the day before along with some new Pryde race sails. This new source tells me "I always remember that as he didn't have any good gear before the race so I was surprised when he turned up with heaps of new stuff.."
