Unknown surfboard makes - Freedoms Family and Pauli

 Does anyone know anything about Freedom's Family surfboards ? There was one up for sale a few months ago which I thought was a one off, until Ross sent photos of his blue one below. So they seem to be an active label producing boards in the early 70s , using Bilbo fin systems . The Bilbo connection may hint that Freedom's Family were produced in Cornwall ; but not definitely. The Bilbo fin in the green board looks like old stock from the late 60s.
Was the label a tax dodge for a bigger producer ? Someone out there must know. If anyone is interested in buying the blue board below, email for details.

 And this is another mystery label - Pauli surfboards . It was recently bought in France by Richard who is a member of the vintage surf club over there. Its a 70s singlefin , and Richard says the previous owner bought it in England in the 80s . I do not know the Pauli label . Anyone ? The board looks pretty gunny so may be a foreign travel board .
