In the mid 70s Mr Dora came up with an idea for a surf contest with absolute parameters as the who was the fastest man alive on a sur board. The basic idea was to time the rider between 2 fixed points on a fast peeling point wave. Miki says he will be putting up $50,000 of his own money in a winner takes all speed duel, so naturally it had to be a scam, and the contest was forgotten before i could recall it. But maybe the idea had merit who knows, as long as you were prepared to lose our entry and not expecting to see a winners cheque well there could have been an interesting turn out.
Like bunker Spreckles here posing next to the Black Princesses Lotus obtained on the grey market where it went missing in Ireland and appeared on the docks in U.S. with da Cat at the helm. The story goes the original owner was happy with the insurance money claimed on the missing vehicle and the performance was up to scratch in the Malibu hills and canyons, every ones a winner babe ain’t that the truth.
