KING CUSTOM SURFBOARDS

 King Surfboards.
According to Surfresearch this logo 
has the board dated to 1961.
Scroll down to King Surfboards listing.

 It measures in at.
9' 6 3/8" x 20 3/8" x 3 3/4"
Nose 16"
Tail 16" 
Pod 5 1/2"
The stringers are inlaid.
The bottom stringer runs down the centre line as usual.
The deck has two stringers.
The left side runs from the corner of the pod
in a curve to the nose.
The right side runs from the other corner of the pod
straight to the nose.
Both stringers are off set at the nose.

 The original fin had been removed
so that it could be displayed 
deck up against a wall.

 The bottom needed to be re laminated.
After years of exposure to UV
and only having one layer of 6oz cloth
 it was extremely weak.
 Two layers of 4oz cloth 
were added over the existing layer of 6oz cloth
 and lapped onto the deck. 

 Bottom lams on.

 Top and bottom gloss coats.

 A new fin had to be made.
9" x 11" 

 Bottom foil.

Finished.
Enlarge image to see the stringers.
