Bilbo 6'5 singlefin

Bilbo 6'5 from around 1969/70. Alex got this one from a chap who lived in middle England and only used it on his yearly summer hols to Newquay or Cromer. This sort of owner usually means a pretty good condition board - if there was no surf that week the board wouldn't get used that year etc. This one has the late 60s Bilbo fin system and an unusual later addition of a leash plug on the underside behind the fin !
