Endless Summer boards

Some of my prized Cornish boards which have been selected to show in the Endless Summer exhibition at Truro museum . Opening soon.
Alex is the major lender but many people have been involved and have offered up their collections so big thanks to them. Some legends of Cornish surfing have also been assisting and lending, including Roger Mansfield, Chris Jones, Nigel Semmens , Rod Sumpter and Gwyn Haslock.
My boards are -
Tris twin fin by Chops Lascalles, 6'5 x 20 1/4.
Jolly Good by Tigger Newling 6'9 x 19.
Graham Nile by John Hall, made for Steve Daniel 6'11 x 19 1/4.
Space Gypsy by Rumpelstiltskin, Danny Garland personal rider 6'8 x 18 1/2.
Martin Richard by Martin Geary, based on Keith Paull's Bing foil, 7'7 x 20.
Stuart (St Ives) by Pete McAllum 8'1 x 23.
Bilbo double stringer, shaper unknown 9'9 x 23.

I will also be lending a Piran by Alan MacBride and a Bill Bailey Aquatek both in the resto bay at the moment , and will be picking up Sean in Newquay's classic Outer Limits and Karma quad.
There will be a great selection of boards. If you like longboards there will be 3 Bickers, 3 Bilbos, a Williams from St Ives and some interesting earlier wooden boards.
