    Eugene was having some difficulty posting pics so I offered to do it for him. He is still waiting on some appraisals to come back, but he wanted to get the opinions of the members on Jamboards. He will be on to add details to the boards later tomorrow.

    Regardless of Eugene's identity and stealthy introduction, his Greg Noll board is missing this fin. Substantial hit to the value. These are very rare, unique to GN boards, and as far as I know, no one makes a reproduction. The poor design of the base made them loosen and be lost forever.

    Surprised the red in the lam is still so bright. Fin definitely hurt value. Only worth what someone will pay. Full restoration would be expensive too.

    certainly is a Da Cat, obviously the worse for wear...might interest someone like Rarick, who would not only restore it properly, with his connections could possibly find a Cat fin as well..

    if that wing Bolt doesn't have Gerry's signature on the stringer, likely a Lopez model mowed by a ghoster that Shipley brought in the back door...

    the fact that Eugene is 'real' is pretty cool..

    MANY ghosters @ Bolt then. Those GL logo Bolts were all over the globe. Fake Boards! Why would anyone care about that Noll Cat? How many here rode them? I rode probably 3-4 different brand new ones at the time (good friend team guy).
    IMO, bottom of the barrel during the period when the best LBs were being made. POS.

    Dora's hype is dead, but not forgotten.

    It was Greg. A long track record of being late to the party w/ inferior design and uber hubris.

    I feel the same as Verterano about all noll boards. The price point is super inflated and I just don't understand the value there. They don't seem to be good riders and too expensive to really enjoy.

    With all that said, I'd be a buyer on the ca dat if the price is right. Never had one.
