Designed for Slater (Nigel Slater), the ‘El Bastardo’ board, boasts the greatest ever graphics to slap a wave’s face off.

This board is named ‘El Bastardo’ after the famous Spanish surfer, known only as ‘Bastardo’.

Close-up view of the nose. You will see that Bastardo is depicted on the nose. The drawing is taken from a brass rubbing, of a stencil, of a tracing, of a photograph, of a pencil sketch, of a potato cut, of oil painting, of a lithograph, of a doodle, of a cave painting, by his wife, Susan.

This is the tail of the board, sometimes known – in surfing circles – as the warlocks temple.
