Boards were plenty small by the ’70s, but surfers had yet to make sense of the new equipment. Ideas of what could be accomplished on a wave were changing with each passing swell. Staying ahead of this revolution meant paddling into every session with an open mind, an ability to erase all preconceived notions. The leading force of change was a pack of young Hawaiians, none more exuberant or spontaneous than the one they called Buttons. – from surfline.com

Not Vintage Yet only a limited of these were built as the business model folded. Of the few that were built cool riders. I purchased this to ride and enjoy and to be inspired to reflect back on how Buttons ripped apart V-Land, Kaisers etc. Buttons was and still is a unique person in and out of the water. Keep surfing and keep being inspired.
I’am seeking any Vintage Buttons Surfboards that maybe still floating out there. So, if you know of any, please contact Surfboardline.com. Mahalo
