    This is from either 1968 or 69. The board looks to be in GOOD condition. Boards of this type can be found in equal or better condition. The value of this board is unknown by the photos only as it depends on who shaped the board. Also these fin boxes (either SAFEset or WAVEset) are liable to becoming brittle and cracked. It appears that someone has added a legrope plug at some stage on the deck, which also detracts from the value. Please let me know if you are interested in selling it. I have 4 Shane surfboards and would like to add to the small selection.
