The top shot is of Peter Connelly at Jeffrey's Bay, South Africa in the 70's. What a beautiful wave and great style and positioning from Peter. His board in the shot is 7'10" x 18" wide which my dad Paul Joske made for him at the time. Peter was one of Dad's early friends and they travelled together through South Africa. Dad's got the shot up in our shed and it's one of his favourites - I think it takes him back to those times.
Dad looked out the original template for the board a while back, which as you can see he made out of sheets of cardboard. I love the outline... like a slender spear. Very interesting. I would love to ride one.
