Surfoplane Vintage Film

Well...I'm assuming they are surfoplanes, or something similar. Some of you may have seen this on Tablers Blurb, but many probably haven't. Fun stuff.

Here's an interesting take on surfoplaning. Also a reminder why you should never turn your back on the ocean...when Mr. Mike is out riding his surf mat.

Poobah,

Classic footage.

There's a lot of info on the inventor of the surfoplane, Ernest Smithers, in the John Ruffels on the paipo interview page.
