Terry Fitzgerald Contest Results

During the 70's Terry was seen as the most devoted Australian Surfer / Shaper, in regards to refining his boards to suit the Hawaiian juice. The Wing Pin Single Fin, was the one design of many, that transferred easily between Hawaii and the vast Australian coastline. The versatility of the Wing Pin therefor resulted in many successful competitive campaigns on a professional level for Terry, in both Australia and Hawaii.

Terry inspired me throughout my youth surfing life, to see Terry in the flesh and bones in Rio de Janeiro "harpoon beach", I was surprised to see him riding so well, it was great to see the character of magazines to be there, alive and real, congratulations for you and family
