I bought this on impulse.  I guess growing up as a grom, I loved looking at those Hawaiian Tropic ads in Surfer Magazine.  All those hot babes with brown skin with oil dripping off, mmmmm.  Thus, is this board collectible?  probably not.  but, I have not seen another one.  Clean 9 all original condition.  Looks like a fun rider.  Unknown who shaped it. Late 70’s.  (o) 9/10
