the whole caboodle

To celebrate passing 100,000 hits - which is pretty amazing for a small blog about old surfboards - I'm going to endeavour to get my whole collection on the blog in a kind of timeline sequence starting in the 60s. I've been meaning to get the whole lot in one photo but never get round to it. So here's the first half from the mid 60s - mid 70s. Thanks to all the 50 or more contributors over the last three years for making the blog a whole lot better.

1966- 69. Bilbo, Bilbo, Stuart, Westcoast, Tiki, Tiki.

1969-71. Conway, Atlantic, Tig, Drouyn, Chateau '41, Weber.

1971- 74, Hayden, Phil Jay, Freedom, Graham Nile, Tris, Creamed Honey.

mid 70s ,Haven, Silverwings, Circle One, Haven, Kevin Cross, Bruce Palmer.


  1. That's just showing off... the scary thing is that most of them look familiar!

  2. I would like to be a professional surfer, I think that this post is wonderful, I want one long-board excellent photos!
