Wavecraft mystery

Daren has sent me photos of his Wavecraft singlefin and wants to know more about it since theres not alot about it online. I too have a mysterious Wavecraft ( not to be confused with Wavekraft of Newquay ) , a 5'2 kneeboard which I found going cheap at my local charity shop. I know of another two Wavecrafts locally but I have a hunch they're from the US, theres no shapers name on mine so that doesn't help. If anyone out there has experience or a good memory please enlighten us.









Here's my kneeboard - its had a hard life but I liked the logo and the keel fins. Obviously had an owner with some spare car filler.

  1. Graham has let me know that Nigel Woodcock spelt his Wavekraft label with a k to avoid confusion with the American Wavecraft label - mystery solved, thank you wise one.
