Dimensions

6’2″ x 19″ x 3″ approx.

Unique features

Tracker (yep as in the boardshorts – it has the same logo as the paper sticker you used to get with a pair of the boardies. It doesn’t have a timber stringer, but a friend suggested it may be before timber stringers and the blanks were joined with a tinted layer of glass??. It has come through the ages, from no leggie, to the drilled hole through the fin, to an early leggie plug (installed by the old owner I reckon)

How did you come to own this board?

Given from a next door neighbour before they sold up and moved on.
Her hubby had passed away from the big c and she was going to dump it but asked if I may like it. She said he had owned it for ages and actually surfed it a lot back in the day

What else do you know about this board?

Not much, I’m guessing it was ghost shaped for the brand as there are no specs on the board of measurements or shaper and that it may have been one of the boards that used to suspend from the ceiling of the retailer right above the rack of boardies?? and yes i’ll admit I’m old enough to remember.

What more would you like to know about this board?

Maybe who might have shaped it, the year it was shaped.
Any knowledge at all would be appreciated. What it may be worth?, it’s not in the best nick but for a 40+ year old board it has done alright.
