On the belly

The ace of clubs - a new addition to my small but growing collection of old bellyboards. The ace is from the 50s or 60s and has been customised by its owner, as many of them were. Looking forward to having a bellyslide this summer, especially on the hollow one.





Here's an old girl from Jim's collection, a Nymph surfjockey from the 40s era ?

  1. Al , The Unicorn was produced by Charles Pearce & sons in the late 60's /70's , It was made with a hi density foam core & is still Dick Pearces favourite board to ride ! He stopped making them because they were so labour intensive !
