kook box for sale

 Adrian in Truro has this 11 ft 7 ''paddleboard for sale, open to reasonable offers. These were used by lifeguards mainly in the 50s for paddling and sometimes stand up surfing. Adrian thinks it could be as old as 1940s, but with these boards its hard to tell so 1950s would be a safe bet. It looks to have been professionally made, but there are no makers marks and at some point it has been partially redecked and revarnished; the job was not very well done. The board used to go on display when the bellyboard champs were on at Chapelporth. Its looking for a new home , email Adrian at wanda@10kenwyn.freeserve.co.uk  or call 07811 182256 .
