Double Wing Swallow
The original round swallow wingers were a typical driving high performance surfboard for clean powerful waves. The double winger derives from earlier work on wing pins and and swallows in Hawaiian and South African waters, and developed as the "good-wave" all-rounder, that no HB team rider dared leave home without.
To cool the power off the bigger versions, and tune to smaller beach-breaks a second wing was added for even more planning area under the back-foot to skate over fat and flat spots and adding to the value of a narrower tail through the wing series.
The most adaptable and adapted of the HB Models, the double winger brought wins wins on a 6’2 at the ’75 Aussie Titles, and at Ulu, 1980, on a 6’5 version. Bells and Jeffreys ’76 launched the longer versions.
5’10 – 6’8
Handsprayed air brushing by Martyn Worthington since 1972. Martyn’s talents are often described as "psychedelic" but always remain true to their surf/art roots. Select either:
FADE: Top and Bottom of the board with colours fading from the rail to centres, glossed and polished to accentuate colour.
MURALS: Airbrushed on the bottom of the board with faded rails and deck, glossed and polished to accentuate colour. Martyn prefers to incorporate individual designs into his artwork so feel free to email your design themes for Martyn’s interpretation & choice of rail and deck colours.
