Are there any SF / Santa Cruz guys out there who know anything about the early O'Neill Surf Shop boards? I have the one below that is 9'8". From what I am told, the original owner was a guy named Skippy who surfed Kelly's Cove back in the day. According to the nephew who I got it from, he remembers it being a banana-colored yellow when he was a kid.
I'm guessing the board is very early 1960s based on the D-fin and both San Francisco and Santa Cruz on the deck. Jack opened the Santa Cruz location in 1959 (I think).
