Saw this Bilbo singlefin on ebay recently and know a bit about its history. One owner from new until he got too old or lost his stoke and took all his surfing stuff to the dump. Luckily the board was pulled out of the skip and put in the for sale section where my friend Adrian bought it for £25! How someone could throw away such a nice board beats me, but anyway Adrian put it on the bay and it made over 220 notes. It came on again recently and made quite a bit less but I hope the present owner love it long time.

Also spotted this 60s Bilbo bellyboard, love the 60s graphics . Also in swinging 60s style is our mate Graham hanging ten down Towan hill on his bilbo circa '68
