There must be something very special about this board...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Rare-Cu ... 1809691087?
Or, did somebody add to many zeros? It sold for $13K (22 bids, and started at 99 cents!).

Must be money laundering, because looking at that I'd say it's a mediocre reshape of a broken old double foam stringer longboard in poor condition. There's a balsa bellyboard from the 50's that has potential Bob Simmons lineage (which can't be verified beyond whatever it is today I guess)...and they're selling that for less last time I looked.

Poobah has good timing if he decides to thin out his paipo quiver on ebay though...

What was the background to the board? I couldn't see any details. It looks like a dog and isn't in good condition.

Rod,

Can more be found out? I'm amazed someone would fork out so much $ based on such limited information. Does the person sell other stuff?

I did not do any follow-up. Feel free to try contacting the seller using the above link. Check the buyer history as well. Both may be kind of cloaked.

A cool $15,000 is the "buy now" price for this piece of (my) surfing history...

Nels... is it full of secret microfilm data intercepted from those big antennas near by your haunts?

Sweet looking Blob!
