more of Jon's boards

Bilbo by Pete McAllum, from around 1969 /70.
Jon sent me around 100 photos of his boards a couple of months ago and I think I've only featured a couple of them - so sorry mate here's some more classic UK boards from the 70s.

Bilbo shaper Chris Jones 1972 . note- thats a bend in the page not some crazy nose rocker.

Energy singlefin from the mid-late 70s. The only Energy label I know is the Australian one that has famous links with Simon Anderson's first thruster designs ; but before that they did produce singlefins - is this the same Energy ? I haven't seen this logo before.

Surfboards Great Britain made in around 1970 shaped at Tiki in North Devon. These are pretty rare as they made the majority of boards under the TIKI label.

Looks like this one used to be a sign !

1969 Tim Heyland

Interesting old mid 70s Haven of Bude with mini-stinger tail. I like the grey tint too - you hardly ever see grey boards. This boards sports both classic Haven logos - the one above ,and nipples at sunrise below...

Nice swallow tail by Graham Nile, from around 1974, a quality board under all that dust.

Graham Nile 1973

Another Cornish rarity, an Outer Limits by Martin gearbox Geary of Newquay, stinger from '75 or '76.
