I created this site so that my collection can have an audience, instead of dust.  My interest in collecting started in 1995 when I found a 5’9″ near mint condition G&S twin fin at a thrift store. At the time, 1960’s longboards were in high demand, but not 70’s or 80’s boards.  Based on speculation, I searched the Recycler weekly and found some rad vintage surfboards throughout the 90’s and 2000’s. Today, Craigslist and eBay are the mediums of choice along with hundreds of other collectors of vintage surfboards around the world. Today in 2016, 1960’s longboards are dwindling in price and demand, and 80’s are in demand.

I welcome any comments, pictures of your boards that you would like to add to the site, offers, or want to sell.

    I am having trouble determining whether i have a real McCoy surfboard! I have looked all over the internet but i can’t find any information about it…i was wandering that maybe you might have come across something similiar or might hold some information about it or where i could get some information from!

    There isn’t many markings on it, it has:
    1. the infamous McCoy logo across the middle
    2. Shaped by Mal Hockley
    3. and is 5’7″ long…other than that nothing else

    I live in Hermosa Beach, California and I’ve been researching appraisers for my 1965 Bing Surfboard. Can you advise me as to how I would get an appraisal and ultimately put it up for sale or auction? Thank you for any advice you may have.

    Serial Number: 3994,
    9 feet 7 inches long
    Redwood Stringers
    Thick glass
    Great condition
    Large 9 inch D Fin
    White with green competition stripe
    White pin striping
    Katamacave Bottom – Noll called it a slot bottom and Bing called it a Katamacave bottom (catamaran and concave-like)
    Bing logo with no name in it (Made to look like cat eyes – ordered that way from BING in 1965 by my friend Steve Clark, who was the one and only, original owner)
