The 20th Anniversary Litmus Fish



It's sort of stunning to think it's been 20 years since the release of 'Litmus', especially given the weight the film still has. Personally it was a game changer- the film that made me excited about surfing again, the film that lead me down the path of the fish and the single fin and widowmaker and all the permutations that you see on this silly little blog. And the high point within the high point for so many of us was seeing Derek Hynd and his quiver at J-Bay- effortless, playful and utterly precise surfing, a few magical moments. Now, 20 years on the film is slowly getting it's dues and Deek is still surfing at an insane level only now he can't be bothered with fins. Andrew by way of some sort of celebration has has shaped two boards, both fish heavily influenced by his beloved Frye fish, and each hand painted with the classic Hynd high line. They are available, and are definitely an edition of 2. We also have copies of the original film as well as Andrew's books 'Ether' and the 
Way Of The Bird' collaboration with Andy Davis. Get in touch at foamandfunction@gmail.com for details.
