    Hello all,

    I have my father's Greg Noll Stemwinder board (a few pics attached). I'm trying to understand a rough value. There is some minor damage, but overall decent shape. 9ft 10 inches with the single fin. Any guidance is appreciated.

    I don’t want to say who but someone on this forum has the twin to that one. I’m sure he would like to know as well

    Since it was your dads I’m going with priceless. Get it fix professionally and ride it on occasion. Whatever you do don’t have a leash plug installed and don’t remove the flower sticker from the fin. :)

    My 2 cents. There are no set prices for antique surfboards. It comes down to how badly someone wants something(what someone is willing to pay) / how many interested parties there are\what you are willing to accept to part with. My advice if you do decide to sell is strike while the iron is hot and while interest is there. Good luck.

    I agree with this 100%, plus this board looks like it will clean up great. That ugly repair will sand right off and the other dings look small enough to fix clear without any issues. I'm crazy sentimental about boards. I'll never sell my Dad's board, but I did put a pretty bad ding in it a few years ago and almost cried. I just try to ride it on special days now.

    I am the one who has essentially the twin of your Stemwinder. One sold in NJ this year for $4000. What will yours bring? Who knows? They are rare, but not as prized as a DaCat. They only made them for a very short time and allegedly only sold them on the East Coast. If you put it up for sale on Craig's list, it will go for nothing. Find the right person and you will get a lot more, closer to that $4000 figure. Does yours say love in the green paint on the bottom like mine does?

    Also too don’t loose that fin. The system was poor and many of the fins were lost or are in poor condition. You are getting some good advice in my opinion. Very nice board!

    Agreed. The Stemwinder is by far my favorite Noll shape and this is a particularly sweet one, the damage notwithstanding. The resin work and the perfect condition fin make it a tempting board. Basenji is correct about Da Cats being more valuable even though they made thousands vs. maybe a couple hundred Stemwinders (I could be off here). Here’s to hoping you fix and ride it but good luck either way.
