How did you come to own this board?

I bought it at a garage sale in Canberra around 1984 and used it for several years. It has been kept in my garage in Brisbane since.

What else do you know about this board?

Nothing really.  It was a bit tricky to ride well possibly because of relatively low volume.

What more would you like to know about this board?

Who the maker is and what value it would have.  My son would like to have it but I don’t want to spoil it’s vintage value by having an ankle strap put on it (advice received from surf shop years ago).

    Don’t put a legrope plug on any board that does not have one. Have a reputable board repairer add a legrope bridge to the deck.
