Aloha Board Shop — Honolulu, Oahu— Has a Great Stash of Vintage Boards

I’m here in Oahu, visiting family and the Hawaiian Vintage Surfboard Auction (July 22 and 23). I cruised into check out some surfboards at Aloha Board Shop and was pleasantly surprised to the ceiling full of vintage surfboards. Hanging from the rafters are boards from Aipa, Surfline, Town and Country, and a variety of others.

This one was my favorite, a mid-1980’s Ben Aipa Town and Country in pristine shape.

This one is an early 70’s, twin fin, Surfline shaped by Randy Rarick, also in excellent condition.

If you’re in Honolulu, be sure to drop into Aloha Board Shop for a great selection of surfboards and a killer display of vintage ladies.
