1970s Keo bellyboard

Got this little number at the car boot last sunday from Lloyd. Early 70s Keo bellyboard / paipo with a slightly scooped deck, dimensions 4ft x 22 3/4 x 2 1/4 with a dinky 6 1/2 inch fin. Love the little fin and and the strength of the red topcoat, still bright after all those years. Made by Stuart Keogh, who had a surf shop on fore st Newquay and a nearby factory; this board gives the address of Holywell bay. You don't see many early British bellyboards like this so it was worth snapping up even though it wasn't super cheap.


  1. nice little board and a good addition to your collection (if you ever want to part let me know....), cheers, henry

  2. should have known it would catch your eye ,I'll let you know first if I ever move it on
