You know those pictures of Bunker Spreckels holding that super thick red surfboard?
I found another cool picture of similar boards. Idk how exactly I got to it, cause I was down a major rabbit hole w/ like 15 tabs open, I was looking at the pics of that red Bunker board, but also here I came across Greenough and started reading some stuff about him too kinda right after that.
It's just weird because that pic is above this article about a Bob Smith/Mr.X that made edge boards in the late 1960's. Then greenough apparently made 'Edge Boards' a year or two after this "Mr. X", but it seems edge boards are credited to greenough for the most part, and when I search edge boards pics they're nothing like those thick ones. Was it just a general design that greenough popularized? And I cant seem to find anything else about the Bob guy. But funny, that looks a heck of a lot like greenough on the left.
Anyway what about those thick ones, who was making those? I'd be inclined to think they just pulled some cool pic for the article that might not be totally accurate, but if you look closely second board from the right does seem to have a little step rail like greenough's edge board design, the green one against the tree too maybe. The article describes boards pretty different to greenough's though.
Anyone recognize the brand on that blue one? The bunker one and these I think are the only like that I've come across. If anyone can point towards more info on the thick ones like who shaped bunker's board and whatnot that would be super cool cant really find the info.
