Historical information

Two examples of improvised surfboards made of solid timber planks, one possibly being an old ironingboard. These illustrate enthusiasm for surfing inspite of lack of ready cash.


These hand made surfboards were possibly used by children or young teenagers who had enought ingenuity to enable them to go surfing when money was scarce.
