Terry Fitzgerald – Hot Buttered single fin – Shaped Circa 1970’s
After several years shaping at Shane Surfboards, Brookvale and a six-month shaping workshop with Dick Brewer in Hawaii, Terry Fitzgerald began production of his Hot Buttered Surfboards circa 1972 (clear boards were $99, tints $102 and sprays $110). The boards were heavily influenced by Brewer’s Hawaiian design theories and the spray work by Martin Worthington was quickly acclaimed and imitated. Terry Fitzgerald competed on the fledgling professional circuit in the early 1970s and starred in Alby Falzon’s Morning of the Earth 1972. Hot Buttered Surfboards and surf products are now sold internationally.
