Dogtown Legend Jeff Ho

I do not know who Jeff from Palms, West LA is. What I do know, however, is that he is a man of impeccable taste who casually takes some sick old boards and just throws them on Craigslist for everyday cro-magnons like you and I to peruse. What we have here (via Craigslist) is a wonderful piece of California surf history…a vintage Jeff Ho surfboard. Jeff claims it’s from the pre-Zephyr days, and the Zephyr sticker he ended up putting on the board was originally intended for a skateboard restoration. This makes sense, as it’s a far cry from the iconic Zephyr logo that has come to signify Dogtown and Venice Beach, and perhaps one of the most seminal crews and eras of Southern California surf culture. The board isn’t in great condition, and it’s pretty expensive, but I tend to think Jeff knows exactly what he’s doing. Either way, it’s worth looking at the pictures.
