Charity Board Auction for Bali
Tonight, a vintage McGrigor single fin, painstakingly restored by Levi Jones and sprayed by Martyn Worthington, will be auctioned with all proceeds going to Project Nasi in Bali.
Project Nasi - 'nasi' means rice in Bahasa Indonesian - are a not-for-profit operating out of Denpassar who supply food staples and domestic needs to cash-strapped Balinese suffering under the pandemic.
The board is an early-70s McGrigor downrailer single fin with Uluwatu-inspired airbrush art on the bottom by Martyn. Martyn worked in the McGrigor factory around the time the board was been shaped.
Levi and Martyn have formed a formidable team both restoring old boards - such as this one - or creating their own functional art. Many of their boards are sold well before complettion, such is the demand for their work.
The board is shown below, and you can place a bid on the Vintage Surfboard Collectors Facebook page. The auction will run through to the following Thursday (16th September).
