Excludes Surfboards

Resurrection Skip Frye

A local customer scored this 1970’s Skip Frye single fin at a garage sale. It was pretty beat so we sent it to Randy for a patch job on the open dings and a new hot coat and gloss coat.
The old repairs with abalone and sea shells are a nice touch.
I like restorations that show the original patina and tell the history of the board.
This one survived decades without getting a leash plug installed which is amazing.
This one will ride again.
Maybe there will be some good scores at our Used Board Swap Saturday October 12th

    In PB Skip and all the other point guys liked to give dings some character. I have many boards that BB fixed that have shells, ants and other random items. This board rules.

    Skip’s penmanship is amazing. His signature is the same every time. it is impressive but i would recommend loosing up just a bit.

    …the planshape looks right on the deal that for was intended.
    The Abalone repairs are cool too, but the other repairs are truly very bad done…but may be Im seeing with shaper/designer eyes.

      Yes, all the repairs looked like they were done at the beach after a good session and a few beers and a spliff. I had Randy just re-patch the old dings with clear cloth and resin to preserve the funkyness.

    Hey, gotta ask….so how much did this board sell for at the garage sale?

    I actually paid $270, I had it repaired as is to preserve the vintage/ beat up look. It actually is very solid and the funky repairs have been clothed over as requested and the hot coat and polish is so nice that it looks like a new board with decorative funky done on purpose. Well almost 🙂 It looks great in person and is solid enough to ride without question. Thanks to JP and Surfy for the continued support of both me and Leucadia
