7'3" Liddle Mr Moto (Mid-70's Historical Model)
Mr Moto was an early Liddle shredder, the X-142 on the stringer indicates that this was an early extra stock board hand shaped by Greg Liddle most likely in the mid 1970's. The model has a boxy rail foil relative to the knifey rail foil many are used to seeing on contemporary Liddles. The bottom contours exhibit a rolled vee that transitions into a harder, panel vee that runs down the majority of the board. Approach this model with shreddy back foot oriented surfing or augment your foot placement more forward to tap into a more down-the-line forward projection.
