Greetings, Shredderz! Today’s post won’t be very long and I apologize in advance for the poor quality of the photos. But any time a Zephyr Surfboard pops up, I’m contractually obligated to write about it here.
There are actually two Zephyr Surfboards currently listed for sale on Craigslist in Los Angeles. You can find a link to the original listing here. The seller is asking $15,000 for both boards. I happen to think that’s a tall order, but I’d rather focus on the boards. The first board is gorgeous, and it has a great Seventies airbrush, complete with a dolphin cavorting through the clouds. I know CR Stecyk did some airbrushes for Zephyr boards, but I have zero idea whether this is his artwork.
The second board being listed for sale is a bit on the funky side. I’m immediately drawn to the differences in the logos between the two boards. You’ll notice the airbrushed single fin at the top of the page is clearly a Zephyr board; the triple stringer single fin, pictured directly above, bears the “Jeff Ho Surfboards & Zephyr Productions” label. I’ve seen other early Jeff Ho boards without the Zephyr branding. Here’s an example of a Jeff Ho single fin I featured earlier (this was literally one of the first blog posts I wrote three plus years ago, so go easy.)
The triple stringer Zephyr board also comes with an interesting looking fin. I don’t know anything about the fin template, but to me it looks all original. The fin screw with the eyelet and the rope is definitely something I have seen from other Seventies sticks, too.
It’s also worth mentioning that I think these same exact boards were sold very recently via Surfing Cowboys. If you look at the Instagram post below, Surfing Cowboys claims they sold these two boards in September of this year. A price was not listed.
In addition, I was able to find a pic of the airbrushed board on Instagram.
I have no idea who owns the boards right now, or how they got there, but I think it’s worth mentioning to any prospective buyers.
