Be sure and check out my other surfing items too... How many of you have seen a balsa wood bellyboard from the 50s? I have only seen one other one that is in a friends collection hanging in his surf shop..That board looks almost the same as this one but he has no idea who made it... This board is extremely rare and all original and is 4'1 in length.. Its in great condition too with only a few tiny spots that need resin if you want to even try to surf it. Cool wood fin and it looks like the bottom part of the board where the fin is was scarfed together..
You would think this board would be light but its not to light more on the heaver side so its made really well... HERE IS NOW WHAT I KNOW ABOUT THIS BOARD... I DO KNOW OF A FEW BELLYBOARDS THAT WERE MADE FROM BROKEN SIMMONS BOARDS THAT WERE VERY GOOD.
THE SCARF IS THE KEY AND MUST BE STRAIGHT ACROSS THE GLUE JOINT ON THE TOP AND AND PERFECT SEMI CIRCLE ON THE TOP. THIS BOARD HAS SOME SIMILAR FEATURES OF A SIMMONS..
My board is exactly what he is describing so if this is a simmons then this price is a steal of a deal as simmons boards go for much much more.. (NEWEST UPDATE FROM JOHN ELWELL) I HAD TO LOOK AT THIS AGAIN AS IT WAS LATE AND I WAS JET LAGGED.
IT IS DEFINITELY A FORWARD SECTION OF A SIMMONS AND ONE THAT I KNEW ABOUT. TRULY AMAZING IT HAS SHOWED UP AND VALUABLE! So here you go you here it from the expert.. The person who buys this rare piece of surfing history i will also include his emails or forward them to you..
