Gordon Woods hand shaped hollow surfboard, 2004. In 1940 Dick Chapple made a Tom Blake design, and this board is a remake of that 1940 Dick Chapple board. Made with Cedar that Gordon got from Queensland. The quality and expert craftsmanship of this board is outstanding, with a gloss that shines like glass. This board is the third last board ever personally made by Gordon Woods. One of a kind and extremely collectable. This is a true investment piece and an incredible piece of history. 12ft x 211/2” x 31/2“.
