vintage French boards

Pierre has sent some more of his collection but a couple of vintage French boards this time. Here's a very pretty twin fin on the Shakti label, made in the late 70s by Christophe Bordenave , French champion in 1974 & 75. He was probably helped by Yvan Amelineau who restored the board for Pierre a few years ago. Pierre says it hasn't been in the water since , you wouldn't want to ding it if it looks that good.

This is one of the three or four kneeboards that Michel Barland made, probably early 70s.
