Spend the money and get it fixed properly.


Boards over 50 years old should have proper fix jobs.

It is fixed properly albeit they are old ding fixes but they are water tight.I'm not going to spend money on something that doesn't need it
Maybe you might be richer than me

Nah your richer than me to afford a board like that. I'd expect with a proper fix $3000+??

Sorry don't have any longboards - haven't been able to surf them since I busted all the lateral support on my right ankle about 2 years ago , and being so long they are buggers to get on the board storage rack so all mine are 7 foot or less . - this one another early 70 s ,7 foot Mike Cundith sky - love the slotted fin . Has a serious Deck delamination which was on my repair list for the lockdown but sadly never happened

Got a few, here is the weirdest one.
S deck, split stringer, semi spoon shape and a Greenough style fin?
Had it for at least 15 years, cleaned it up a bit, but never surfed it. Think it came from the Wanneroo markets for $76.
Can't read the label at all.

I know nothing on tassie surfing history. When did Surfing enter tas.

How old is that board? Wood or Glass?

Anywhere I could read about tassie surfing history. Quick google search didn't show up much.

Board was wooden - was a bit of a story written on the board - thinking it was late 1950 s surfed at Park Beach down near Hobart . Happy to be corrected if River Rider or 2 MT are about

8 foot 1950 s okanui - local board the older blokes can remember this being surfed on the local beaches in the 60 s , 70 s - hollow wood build surprisingly light

Sweet, not much seems to be written about Tassie surfing in books I've read. VIC, NSW & QLD seem to dominate the surfing history books.

Tough blokes Surfing down there before Wetties were invented. Brrrrrrr..

Good swimmers SP - before wetsuits became available old woollen footy jerseys were worn to block the wind - must have weighed a ton when wet

Vintage board, vintage rider?

Both old and crusty

I restored this 1967 Jackson transition board for a friend. From memory it was numbered 1,783. Brian Jackson must have been one of the the biggest makers at the time.
