1940s Youth Paddleboard / Surfboard "The Skipper"
What we have to say:USA 1940s
Beautiful handmade surfboard from the early 1940s.
Constructed like a canoe with a skeleton frame. The deck and bottom is made of Marine Ply which is varnished.
The nose is painted a bright yellow with "The Skipper" painted on it. This is a sleek speed-board from the 1940s and some lucky youngster would have been the envy of his surf buddies for owning such a rocket.
Deck and frame are in good condition. Bottom has splits in laminate and areas of cracks and varnish loss.
Amazing condition for a wooden surfboard almost 70 years old.
Measurements height: 8 ft. (244 cm) depth: 3 1/2 width/length: 17 1/2
Materials/Techniques: Marine plywood molded on wood skeleton frame.
