During the ‘70’s it was hard to find a more influential Australian surfer/shaper in Hawaii than Terry Fitzgerald. His Sunset Guns introduced concaves, spiral vees and wings in well-documented sessions epitomising the style and speed that was the short board revolution. The Gun’s roots are in the first 6’10 ‘wing’ round-tail proto-type and first Hot Buttered Flyer launched at Narrabeen’s Carpark Rights, then taken to the world stage at Sunset, Makaha and Laniakea. As the weapon of choice for ‘Mr Body Torque’, the gun version was pure speed with the added ability to break lines after long fades and bottom turns. All created from perfect foil and balance point.
