old San Onofre Surfboard

Pete Noble sent me this via "9-7 Redwood Pine, Balsa: Board originally owned by James Dowden brother of Al Dowden first president of San Onofre Surfing Club. Each brother had a board built on the beach in Corna Del Mar. This is Jame's Surfboard. In 1955 James moved to Sacramento and left board with his brother Al. Al's son knocked the entire nose off in 1957 and had it reshaped into a hobie Makaha shape, On display over the Bar at The Endless Summer Bar and Grill in Santa Barbara. Documentation available, Documentation verified by the late Les Williams at a Hobie San Onofre Classic. "

This board is for sale. contact Pete at if you are interested.
