Greetings, Shredderz! Hope your weekend has been chock full of shapely waves and light offshore winds. Here are some finds I came across recently.
Ole Noserider on Craigslist (Orange County)
I haven’t written much about Ole Surfboards before, which was the brainchild of Bob Olson. This one sports a nice D fin and I would guess it dates to sometime in the 1960s. It might be all original, too. Priced at $975.
This one is going for $12K out the gates, which might be a little ambitious. But it’s worth clicking through for the pictures. This thing is in incredible condition – I’m talking time capsule status.
The airbrush on this board is pure 1970s. Nuuhiwa was the subject of an earlier Sledz post, which I naturally recommend you read if you’re interested in learning more. Otherwise, bask in the sheer outrageousness of this paint job, which toes the line between painstaking craftsmanship and looking like a Lisa Frank parody. The board is incredible condition, but it’s no longer for sale (closed at a healthy $1,258!)
