I’m on the South Shore of Oahu with family and friends and planning to go  on a  yard sale, vintage surfboard search only to wake up the Civil Defense sirens warning of the pending Tsunnami to hit the Hawaiian Islands. Heading to high ground.

Jack Meyer + Peter Schroff Twin Fin Collaboration

 

Between my day job, my girlfriend, surfing, and my obsession with vintage surfboards, it’s difficult to score a rare vintage gem.  As we all know, “timing is everything.”  This time, I truly won gold with this Peter Schroff twin fin with Jack Meyer airbrush artwork. Both Schroff and Meyer have signed the board making it authentic.  At this point, I haven’t seen a Schroff with Meyer artwork. If you have one or have seen one, email me pics and or details: thevintagesurfboard@gmail.com

Enjoy the pics and Youtube Video.

Vintage 1982 Hydro Sport Single Fin Surfboard by Jim Fuller

I scored this clean early 80’s single fin Hydro Sport surfboard by Jim Fuller. The stringer reads, “82 – 621 shape Jim Fuller”.  Dating back to the 1970’s, Jim Fuller was a renowed shaper and also a mentor to Matt Biolos, founder of …Lost Surfboards.  For more information about Fuller, Surfing Magazine acknowledges his career and contribution to surfboard shaping http://www.surfingmagazine.com/news/surfing-pulse/022504_rip/

Check out my Youtube Video of this board:

The Huffington Post Reviews the Premiere of The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D

On Monday, February 8th, my lady, Stacie Krajchir, gave me an early Valentine’s Day surprise and took me to the World Premiere of The Ultimate Wave Tahiti 3D.  It was a great evening with some surf legends in attendance including Peter Townsend, Kelly Slater, Raimana Van Bastolaer, and Reef McIntosh.  Along with being my creative girlfriend, she writes for The Huffington Post. Check out her review of the movie.

Back To The Future…Slater’s Vintage Surfboard 2030.

Will this Slater experimentation survive 20 years from now, making it a vintage surfboard?!!! See the following link, Slater’s “Chunnel.”  I can’t wait to see how he surfs it @ Snapper Rocks, Australia.
