A very happy custom shape client...
Terry Fitzgerald featured in Alby Falzon's original film 'Morning of the Earth' and continues his surfing internationally whilst shaping his single fin surfboards and other designs at Hot Buttered in Australia.
As a sequel to the iconic Falzon film, Andrew Kidman has produced 'Spirit of Akasha'. During the initial showing of the 'Spirit of Akasha' at San Sebastian Film Festival in 2013, the Single Fin segment received some of the greatest reviews which perhaps demonstrates both the awe felt when watching single fin and free style surfing and the connection with the benefits of riding single fin surfboards.
Hot Buttered Soul was a revolutionary four track LP released by Isaac Hayes and the Bar-Kays in 1969. A few months later, 20-year-old Terry Fitzgerald, fresh from a Hawaiian winter season and a big fan of funk and soul rhythms, decided to borrow the name for his surfboard company. But all three words didn’t quite fit on the rainbow sash logo. Thus Hot Buttered Surfboards were born - and with it one of surfing’s true originals. But the third word never went missing. Instead it’s lived in the handmade, hand-painted HB surfboards and the styles that arose from riding them, over three decades, in the best surf on the planet."
