Bilbo singlefin

Nice Bilbo shortboard from around 1969/70, a simple shape but looks sweet. No stringer just a line of glue, and this one has the B logo which was apparently inspired by the London clothes shop Biba. There were only a few bilbos with the full biba style lettering as the guys didn't dig the logo and agreed to just use the B, I think CJ told me this a while back. The leash plug wouldn't have been original. This ones from the Gul collection, photos by Alex.

Full flower power logo 1969

Unused '67/'68 transfer decal for the Welsh Bilbo shop run by Dave Friar
