Rare vintage G&S Skip Frye circa 1967
Transition era V bottom. Fully restored
An artifact from the early days of the shortboard revolution, influenced by Austalian Vee bottoms
Fully intact G&S Skips are rare enough, a V bottom is unheard of
Groovy flower resin art is original.
When this board was restored the original W.A.V.E.S.E.T box was removed and a new Bahne box was installed.

Moonlight made a lot of surfboards for Rip Curl with Wayne Lynch designs which were shaped by Bill Shrosbree, Gary Hanel and Dan Van Zanten of Penguin Surfboards.
5’8″ x wide x chunky

1970’s Light Vehicle

My friend Marty brought in this killer 1970’s Campbell Brothers Bonzer with the Light Vehicle bottom.
I love how futuristic these boards are, especially for 1977. It’s like discovering a 35 year jet pack at a garage sale and wondering why we don’t all have one now.

Vintage 8’3″ Wayne Lynch Involvment Surfboard

At Surfy Surfy on loan right now we have Patrick Leahy’s original Wayne Lynch Involvment surfboard circa ’67. 

Wayne Lynch carving it up during the Shortboard Revolution 

Early Wayne Lynch Involvment ad. 

The bottom is battle scarred. The board has been restored with a fresh hot coat and gloss, whomever did it wisely left the patina. 

Resin pinline. This nose template is still widely used today. 

Not sure if the resin leash loop is original or added later. 

These rock scars would explain why leashes became instantly popular. 

Fin systems have always been part of surfboard evolution. 

Great logo. Anyone know the original artist? 

This board was on display at the premiere of Jack McCoy’s new ambitious surf film A Deeper Shade of Blue at the Hawaiian Hilton Village in Waikiki on Feb 6th. 

*special thanks to Patrick Leahy of West Wetsuits for sending me to Hawaii for the premiere screening. It was an honor and an incredible trip.

*update: here is the fin which is still in Australia
