This was cool find.  Actually on Ebay.  Great example of a George Greeno Spoon.  This was handcrafted to my understanding out of San Diego, Ca.  I have no information on Surf Systems Brand.  So you viewers, please help me out here……   This beauty is in all original condition, one ding repair on the nose, otherwise in great shape.  Classic Greeno Tuna Fin with that flex.   I have been tempted to take this out for a spin, but with my Buddha Weight, I am afraid I may blow right thru the fiberglass deck.  Well, if I drop 30 lbs., will keep you informed.  (o) 8.5
