    That looks like a pretty decent board, I could see myself riding it.

    Those are some pretty good prices on those. If these shapes fit the bill for your type of surfing, those would be some good finds.

    I would be willing to bet that the board is actually late 1968, possibly early 1969. It has a WaveSet fin box and those colored foam stringers were out by then. Those WaveSet boxes were still used through 1969, but board designs changed so much in that year that they were history by the time 1970 came around. Transitional boards are the hardest to come by as they were glassed light and weren't built for that long of a period.
