I've been working on getting together paperwork to register a Sunfish sailboat (pretty silly to have to register it if you ask me) when I noticed that surfboards are exempt from the registration requirements. It made me think of those old surfboard registration decals you sometimes see on vintage longboards. Don't get me wrong - I am obviously glad that surfboard registration is a thing of the past, but I am surprised that any government would have given up their money grab. My question for any of the old timers: What happened with that? What were the circumstances that led to that no longer being a requirement?
