boards for sale

NOW SOLD Tig egg shaped by Tigger Newling from around late '69 or 1970. Rare board inspired by Aussie designs of the time which Tigger saw while competing abroad. Its 6'2 and has an s-deck , and has no major damage, just some tanning, a few dings and some pressure marks. Nik realises condition isnt perfect so is happy to take offers accordingly. The fin has been poorly repaired. No leash plug so theres a drill hole in the fin for the leash.

NOW SOLD Nice original early 70s Tris, 7'4 x 21 1/2 x 2 3/4. Redwood stringer, original ply fin, glassed on leash loop. Strong old board with solid glass job, so has survived well .Deck is really clean with no delam. The underside has three old repaired dings , and a faded oval where a sticker has been. Its dry and ready to surf.


  1. The Tig is sold

  2. To all you vintage board collectors,lets all be honest when selling, regarding delam, things covered with stickers etc,i have had a couple that were not as honest as they should have been,and from people who are fairly well known ,keep it honest guys and keep it good,i am not referring to either of the boards above,
