Limited Edition pigs

Balsa Collector Series

9'4" x 22 1/2" x 3"
'The late 50's heralded great change in surfboard construction, as boards went from being hollow or solid timber to the foam/fibreglass build that we are all familiar with these days. The final era of solid timber construction featured a board known as the 'pig'. The template was distinctive with its narrow width (often less than 22"!), huge wide tail, and over-hanging D-fin. To celebrate the beauty of the pig we've released a Limited Edition solid balsa replica. These are some of the most beautiful boards we've ever had come through our factory - solid balsa construction, double glossed for that deep shine, laminated timber D fin with a beer tinted halo, and a numbered copper plaque, that we can mount on the deck or on the bottom depending on how the board will be displayed. There will be just 12 made, all hand finished and signed by Bob'
