logan sent me this via surfapig@live.com:the other day i was surfing just north of cardiff and i was talking to this guy about your blog and he told me to send you some pix so here you go this is from what i can tell a 1959 velzy pig. i found it up in san fran. in june its my daily driver now i love it it rocks!! so any ways i hope you like it. logan calkins


  1. Beautiful board. . .
    and Dale Velzy was such an amazing man, with a great sense of humor, creativity and fun. He is sorely missed. . .
    Aloha, Cher

  2. wow. sweet pig indeed :)
    love those combos of blue tones & brown on boards. real nice

  3. Nice board,

    Is there a 59 or 1959 on the board by the tail?

    Do you see a stringer down the middle?


  4. when i sanded off the hot coat it had a 3/4" redwood stringer and i did not see any #s but i may take a second look. is that how he dated his boards, i guess is that it is a 59 or 60 due to the velzy time line
