I own a vintage Surf Line Hawaii board shaped by Buddy Dumphy. Is there anyone here that knew him that could give me some information on it or even be interested in purchasing? Thanks in advance!

Scrub it kook
Knew Buddy Dumphy back in the 80s when he would come in to Tower Records all the time. He was big into jazz. A really great guy, super nice and humble about what he did for a living. Tragedy what happened to him. Would like to have a board. Where are you? I'm in Hawaii but go to the mainland every now and then. Let me know the length of the board and how much you want for it when you get a chance.
Thanks for the post.
got a 9-6 Buddy Dumphy when he did a few shapes for Hawaiian Style. I still ride it but thinking about selling it since I am down sizing. I will get some pics today
Buddy made some really nice boards for surfline.
