Zuma Jay kneeboard

I bought this board from the dump, covered in layers of spray paint. After some sanding back I found out it was a Zuma Jay from Bude . Its a twin fin kneeboard or kids board , 5'2 long with multi fins and channels. In good condition under the paint, its got a great logo which looks more 70s than early 80s when the board was made. It would have been pretty bright when it was made !
Zuma Jay was one of Bude's main surf shops. The main Zuma Jay company was in California, and the Bude one was an offshoot of that with boards shaped locally under licence.

A good shot of a day glo Zuma Jay . The girls look a bit more California than Bude.
