cloud bottom Bilbo

Another interesting board from Jason, a '68/'69 Bilbo shortboard in nice condition with original large spray on the underside, unusual for Bilbos. Made from a stringerless blank, just a line of glue , shaper not known but its finished to a high standard, mabye a custom.
'Heres another unusual one of my Bilbos. I call it the cloud bottom. Bought it on main beach Wooly, the seller wandered off to buy a 'Bic' ,I guess we both got what we wanted !' - Jason.
Bilbo or Bic ? No comparison there !















Bilbo team rider and Welsh shop manager Dave Friar comes off the top at Tolcarne , july 1967.





Dave again, pot hunting with the classic Bilbo van, 1969.
