Here’s one for collectors, retro riders or anyone else who appreciates classic shapes with their own special …. aura. Wayne Lynch’s surfing and craftsmanship are widely revered across the surfing world and have been for forty-some years, so an eBay auction like this worth a sniff. Here’s the info we got, plus links to the eBay pages:
“Hi, Rob Dunn is my name. I market antique boards and special projects for the surfing industry.I’m currently marketing a project for Wayne Lynch.
It’s been 40 years since Evolution (the Movie, the Poster, the Board; 1968) We have produced 40 boards for 40 years. 100% original, Certificate of Authenticity, numbered and signed. The board is also numbered, Limited Edition and Signed. We sold the first 30 quickly and have sat on the last 10 for the rest of the world. The price is AUD$4100 plus freight for the package.
It’s also been 40 years since Involvement, 1969. We have done the same as above, but making 50 of them. We have recently finished the first few. (No.1 sold for $5000 and no.1 Evolution sold for $6000.) In this package is a copy from the only original poster in the world with both logos on the same poster and the bottom half is Wayne at 1969 Australian Championships on both boards. (This poster is only available in the package, and is also signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity). The price is $4300 plus freight for the package.
Then last but not the least: A 9’6 Wayne Lynch Gun Special Edition, 100 only for the world. Numbered and signed (board only!) First lot will be available early 2010. The price will be $3000 plus freight. (No.1 is already spoken for at $4000)
Then to top it off, we organised the boards, Wayne and Bells backdrop. Photo on canvas, 21″x31″. Professionally photographed, stretched, framed and sprayed, with Limited Edition, 1-50 + signed. This has nothing to do with the package. It will be sold on the open market. Price will be $499 or $450 plus freight for overseas (not framed).
