Conway surfboards early 70s

Until recently this was one of those dusty attic dwellers, now its in Alex's collection with his small band of other Conways. Made by John in Newquay in the early 70s, a different logo from the others I've seen, mabye it precedes his bird logo. Its an early board though, check out the completely square tail and glue on leash loop made of rubber. John was making quite a few boards at the time but still retained a reputation for making artful boards rather than total mass production.
