Sky Surfboards – Tracks, January 1983 Initially owned by Geoff Hears, Sky surfboards became one of the most iconic surfboard labels in Australia throughout the 70s and 80s. Featuring the pinched, psychedelic font and an array of colourful sprays, Sky boards were perennial attention grabbers out in the lineup or when tucked under the arm of a bronzed wave zealot. Aesthetic allure was always backed up by cutting edge design, particularly when you consider the range of shaping luminaries who spent time at Sky. This photo alone features Michael Cundith, Rod Dahlberg, Chris Brock, Gary Timperley and the unmistakeable mullet of George Greenough amongst other skilled craftsmen. Although not pictured, Bob McTavish was also sculpting foam for Sky at the time. Not surprisingly there is a hot market for second hand Sky boards amongst collectors. Meanwhile, Sky is enjoying something of a renaissance with Neil Cormack still making boards under the Sky label.
