60s O’Neill Longboard & More

Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to the latest installment of the Weekend Grab Bag. All of the boards featured below are currently listed for sale as of publish time. We’ve got a few gems this weekend, including a cool 60s O’Neill longboard, a Windansea single fin and a Schroff twinnie. Keep scrolling for more.

9’10” 60s O’Neill Longboard (Craigslist LA)

Everyone knows O’Neill and their wetsuits, but once upon a time O’Neill also produced surfboards under their label. I have heard rumors that Phil Edwards shaped a handful of boards for O’Neill, but I haven’t been able to confirm this. Either way here’s a sweet 60s log that’s still in good condition. I love the old school logo, too.

5’6″ Schroff Twin Fin (Craigslist Orange County)

I think of Peter Schroff as the mad scientist of the infamous 80s Echo Beach scene. Schroff boards always have creative and colorful graphics. This one is just a tad earlier than his more classic boards — note the script logo at the nose — but there are still tons of cool details to unpack. Check out the G&S Star System fins and the fluted wings.

70s 6’6″ Windansea Swallow Tail Single Fin (Craigslist San Diego)

I’m a sucker for 70s single fins, including this neat Windansea. Love the tint on the bottom and there’s a nice contrasting red resin pinline, too. I’m sure you’re also stunned to hear I dig the logo, too. Not sure who shaped this one. I know a young Bob Hurley shaped for Windansea Surfboards back in the day — see here for a clean example of one of his boards — and the green swallowtail has a fish signature, but no name on it. Your guess is as good as mine.
