Real Gerry Lopez board ...
Howzit? Not sure if I'm putting this in the right place. Just found you guys online and you seem pretty knowledgeable about Gerry's boards. I remember growing up in Del Mar as a 12 year old, surfing with my little friends before and after school. 1973 or '74 Gerry

The # is upside down from the signature. Otherwise the # looks like GG21. Gerry's signature sure looks legit. You can even see the different pressures the sharpy marker left at the beginning and end of the letter strokes. I'm no expert ... probably watch too much Dexter. Just seems like all the circumstances point to it being legit. It was old and had been hiding under the deck when I found it in 1990. It was on Maui, Gerry had a house and surfed there. Signature looks real. I've seen so many pics of Lopez riding a big yellow gun. You guys would have a better idea , check out the pics.
