Derek Hynd, Motorcycles, Dirt Quake and Surfing....

"Bikes were ridden faster, boards the same. It's almost impossible to let kids know how important motorbikes were back then all over Australia- just rockets to death, but what a way to go. It was just huge."
Derek Hynd, master of speed and sliding turns, talking to Andrew Kidman in The Surfer's Journal Vol. 11 #1. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to make my annual U.K. visit and combine some surfboard delivery and action with a trip to Norfolk to experience the complete Experience that is Dirt Quake. Speed and sliding galore, Derek would have loved it. Here's a few of the craft involved, most of them as hand made and eclectic as any board you'll see here.
