Ok, for the uninitiated (me), can anybody go into more details/stories about the feather light logo under the main logo?
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.

In a single word, MARKETING. Lighter glassing schedule. No more double 10 oz, top and bottom, the previous standard. Now single 8oz bottom, single 8 oz plus deck patch, on the deck. The boards were lighter, compared to previous standard boards. Still heavy by later (todays) expectations.
SHAPER SINCE 1958

rise to a new credibility
may you soon sense the vicarious thrill
of mans sensibilites exalted to near weightlessness
on this water planet spinning within inertia from the begining of time

Ambrose, Dunno how you come up with that lyrical prose but damn it’s interesting to read.
Not sure if it makes me smarter for thinking about it.
or dumber for not knowing what the hell youre talking about,
Love it anyway.
This is amazing!
Yes the Red “Super” is long gone. Still curious about the paper used in those days for lams. It “haloed”. The paper was visible and more so with age. Yes single layer Volan 8 oz. is what most shops switched to. Surfboard specific cloth was not quite there yet. The Volan used at the time is basically the same 8oz Volan that can be bought today. My Missouri St. backyard boards from ‘69-70 we’re glassed with Volan purchased at Mitch’s in La Jolla.
