Description

Wallace Toothpick 1947 Vintage Surfboard. In 100% all original condition. A true piece of history. All nails are great, and the timber has no wood rot or splits. Confirmed by Bill Wallace himself that this Toothpick was made in 1947 in his parents backyard, and that he has not seen one in this good shape. He said they used to pressure it a bit by blowing air into it (by mouth) and then quickly putting a cork in the hole – this would give tham an extra 30 minutes of surfing before it filled up with water. Classic! 13ft
