This beautiful solid wood surfboard is from the the 1920s. The board was hand shaped with a hard top rail and rounded lower rails that would have allowed for smooth turning. The nose has been hand planed to give shape and allow for lift in the wave. The rails and the bottom have been stained a darker color (probably at inception of the board) giving an effect of a multi wood type of board that was popular at the time. The knots in the wood go through the thickness of the board, adding beauty and originality to the piece. This board would grace any collection or would be a fabulous stand alone display item. 1920s Solid Wood Surfboard, Original.
