Hawaiian Island Creations Channel Bottom Board

Here’s an example of an old school Hawaiian Islands Creations board on Craigslist. Measurements are 5′10″ x 20″ (approximately). I think the $450 price is, uh, optimistic, especially considering the deck looks like crumpled up aluminum foil in places, but I dig the hideous 80s paint job, and the channels and quad fin…

Jeff McCallum Quad

This one is a no-brainer: a Jeff McCallum quad fish on Craigslist, in seemingly great condition, for $500. Who knows what kind of pressure dings and heel dents are lurking underneath the wax job, but this is an eminently reasonable price for a board that can easily retail for twice as much (e.g.,…

Dewey Weber Stylist Mini Gun

Found on Craigslist in Cayucos, CA is a vintage Dewey Weber Stylist mini gun. The poster claims it’s from 1969. Looks like the real deal, but it’s hard to tell given the, uh, not quite professional photography stylings. The Stylist logo matches up with the poster’s description as well as Stoked N Board. It’s…

Cino Single fin for HIC

This thing is gorgeous. Originally listed on Surfboard Hoard, this is an early Hawaiian Island Creations (HIC) board from 1981, and shaped by well-known Hawaiian shaper Cino Magallanes. The board is in beautiful condition, as you can see from the pictures, and I dig the old-school logo. The triple redwood stringers are a…

Ramsey Jay

For sale in Santa Barbara (via Craigslist) is an old Ramsey Jay board. Poster claims it’s from 1960, but according to Stoked N Board, the Ramsey Jay logo pictured was in use from 1967 to sometime in the 70s. This board isn’t in great condition.

Oh Baby! Christian Fletcher Signature Model

I love surfboards in general, but I hold a special place in my heart for 80s and 90s surf culture. There’s something about the neon and the brash attitude of that era – I mean, we’re talking about a time when it was not just considered acceptable but downright cool to wear webbed…

Haut Sting(er)

This Craigslist post has a Doug Haut shape from 1976. Call it Santa Cruz by way of the North Shore. It’s an interesting shape from Haut, a legendary Santa Cruz shaper, clearly in the style of legendary Hawaiian shaper Ben Aipa’s famous Sting design. The poster claims the board has been stored indoors for…

Hansen “The Master”

Really sweet and clean looking Hansen “The Master” model board up on eBay right now. Unrestored, apparently kept inside for most of its life, and according to the listing it has been surfed <10 times (good if you’re a buyer, but borderline negligent if you’re the seller!)

Vintage Rick Noserider Surfboard

Oh baby! This here is a Rick Surfboards longboard from what the posting claims is 1965. The Rick noserider bears serial number 1252 and it comes in at a pretty hefty 9′9″. From Stoked n Board it’s not clear if the numbering matches up to the year that’s claimed, but the logos seem to…

Great Moments in Pop Out History: Dextra

Another interesting find on Craigslist…a Dextra board from sometime in the 60s. According to the listing it is serial number 7588. Stoked n Board’s excellent resource page doesn’t have any info about when this would correspond to, but the same page indicates that logo is probably sometime in 1965. Board looks to be…
