Thevintagesurfboard.com was created out my passion for late 1970's and early-to-mid 1980's surfboards. My collection started back in the early 1990's when I found a clean early 1980s G&S Twin Fin @ a local Salvation Army store. I bought the board to ride it and also reminded me of my first surfboard that I bough in 1983, a McCoy twin fin swallow tail with purple and red airbrushing.
I rode that G&S @ Trestles and got many hard looks and comments, "What the hell is that thing?!" and "Only kooks ride twin fins!" Just about the same time, in 1993, Tom Curren returned to a ASP Surf Contest armed with a 1970's 5'5" twin fin and killed it. That event led to Lost Surfboards releasing 5'5" X 19 1/4" which catalyzed the "ride everything movement" and moved the vintage surfboard collecting beyond 1960's longboards.
Today, there are vintage surfboard collectors around the world who collect every type of board to the very specific time period collector. What era do you ride or collect?!
