Ross Hawkes Pro Model bodyboard with Manta circa early 90′s was one of the most popular┬ásignature models for many seasons in Australia. The picture below was the official poster that accompanied each board.The shot was taken on a classic Island day in the early 90′s. It was crowded as usual and Hawkey wasn’t getting anything when he lucked into this one beast that hit Surge and went mutant. When he saw the sequence later he was blown away as he didn’t know what the wave was doing behind him. Ross even admitted at the time the poster was so popular that some kids bought the board just to get a copy of it.
