    Hi to all interested!!!

    So I stumbled upon this Craigslist find. They guy I got it off of said he bought it off an "old Lady" at a garage sale. He also told me it was her sons and that he ended up taking a career job in the military so he was never going use it gain and that was years ago.

    It is a vintage Gordon & Smith ....... and this is were I get lost?

    I have been around surfing for years and this one has me confused. My gut instinct tells me its a kneeboard but that does not feel quite right either.

    It measures approx. 4 foot 5 inches. and is approx 22 inches wide. There is no visible stringer or stringer markings for that matter. No leash plug and the fin is glassed on. Is a prototype for G&S???

    The only thing that I can find on the net that is remotely similar which was produced by G&S was the "spoon" model although I do not believe this to be that either.

    I have found similar type kneeboards and belly boards from the 60's and 70's made by other shapes but NOTHING from such a iconic company like G&S. Being as well know as Gordon & Smith is, you would think there would be something out there that I could compare to.

    My first board that I learned how to surf on was an old 7'2" G&S single fin so needless to say I have a special place for G&S and when I saw this I had to pick it up!
