Hollow Boards Full Of Character

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010


The ancient Hawaiians surfed on solid wooden core surfboards for thousands of years. It wasn’t until 1926 that swimming champion and inventor Tom Blake invented the hollow core surfboard. It would be this surfboard design that would dominate that shoreline for several decades until the late 1940’s. It has been said that these lighter surfboard designs aided in the evolution of the modern surfboard. As you can imagine these original Tom Blake surfboards are extremely rare and hard to come by. If you are lucky enough to find one in decent shape you can expect to pay a hefty price for one, till now. Vintage Surfboards, located at offers artistic reproductions of Tom Blakes’ early boards constructed of carefully selected hem fir, cedar, pine and redwood. Vintage Surfboards produces four models based on archival research and original specifications. They reproduce the Pointed Tail, Big Wave Pintail, Waikiki Special and The Champion Paddleboard models. I must say from the photos on their website these boards look amazing. If you love the true classic look of an original surfboard then I highly suggest you check out Vintage Surfboards.

Big waves, Big Guns

Anyone who knows anything about the “original” surfers knows about Greg Noll. Noll known in the surfing circles as “Da Bull” because of the way he “charged” down the face of a wave with apparent fearlessness, is a pioneer of big wave surfing. He is perhaps best known for being the first surfer to ride a wave breaking on the outside reef at the so-called Banzai Pipeline in November 1964. And now, BoardJoy is proud to offer original, vintage, excellent condition Greg Noll surfboards.
