Old Bilbos

From Surf Scene 1981, don't understand the 20 years on bit since Bilbo started in 1965...

Bilbo stand at the Earl's Court boat show, London 1967.

The weathers far too bad to take any photos of my boards at the moment so here's a couple of interesting Bilbos off the 'bay, always a good place to find relics. We have an unusual full red tint 7'6 with the very large early bilbo fin in finbox, broken off. The seller says its easy to get a replacement fin, believe me its not, CJ only has one original and he can make one for £90 . Also check out the very early Bilbo 10 footer with thick stringer, circa '65 or '66 , looks like a replacement fin, but still a nice old board which didn't go for much money.
