Haven't seen this site before; mostly sponges but some other stuff if you look hard enough.

Paipo surfer in repose,
Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?

Uncle G,

Reminds me I should follow this up. Had some contact with them in 2011.

An update:

1) http://bodyboardmuseum.com.au/history-l ... lly-board/

Can't find anything on the Southseascinema site and the e-mail doesn't work. However, Mike Broderick and Darel Shea confirmed this board belonged to a Jim Reilly. In Mike's interview the board can be seen under a tree root.

I'm working on an interview with Jim.

3. http://bodyboardmuseum.com.au/retro-pro ... board-60s/

No luck on this one.

Rod reckons this is a boogie board. I reckon it has a round nose. Anyone recognise the photo source?

Bob
