I just picked up a beautiful vintage 70's 7' 9" Surfboards Hawaii gun shaped by Mike Slingerland. Its pre leash plug and has the original Rainbow fin, not drilled for leash. It has a tapered stringer. On the stringer is the number 5625 with an "S" below that. I found it in an antique store in Weatherford, Texas. How it ended up there, I have no clue. To the left of the Surfboards Hawaii laminate it says "Charlie Don't Surf" and on the right side has a stick figure of a viet cong with a circle and slash over it. They look to be hand painted on but very professionally. I'm trying to find out some history on this board as it is pretty unique with the Vietnam War stuff on the deck. If anyone know Mike Slingerland, sure would appreciate it if they would ask him if he remembers this board. I know he has shaped thousands of boards and its a long shot. Thanks.
