The board is a 5'10" adjustable twinny with G&S~0874 penciled in under the glass by the tail pad.
Do you like it?
Did you ever own or ride one?
Do you think it was made in 1974 based on the serial number?
Do you think it's a nice show piece?
Do you have any noteworthy stories related to an old board like this?
Do you know the value?
Do you do do do?
It's not for sale but I may consider parting with it when I move in order to reduce the amount of belongings I need to drag along.
All comments welcome, even alpha sharky snarky ones:)
How about keep the board and throw out some other non surf related stuff?
Awesome boards. please post again if you do wind up selling it! and please don't be like my dumb coworker and drill a hole through it to put it on the wall.
No, they're black plastic I guess (original) and adjustable. You can move the fins 5 inches from the front or back of the boxes. I haven't ridden it in a while, but I have them foreward to make the board looser.

All info and derailments welcome.
Now, time to derail my own thread.
The search function that Jeffrey raves about sucks balls. I have typed in exact, please note: EXACT, thread titles only to be returned to the search function page and asked to narrow my parameters. I narrow my parameters, and then, I'm asked again to narrow my parameters! It's a vicious loop to nothing, that inspires me give myself a swirly every time.
So, page by page I go, searching.........................
Oh, look, I don't have permission to post this and need to "refresh the page".
Ok, page refreshed.
Oh, look, I'm not logged in.
Ok, I re-logged in.
Oh, look, I have to start the post over.
Ok, I re-did the post.
Oh, look half of it magically disappeared along with the auto-restore option.
Ok, I'll re-type that part.
This is my forum experience so far today and it's not the first time.
Does it have any type of signature on it?
G&S has had literally hundreds of ghost shapers over the years....many were very good and went on to shape their own labels (Skip Frye for one), many others toiled in oblivion.
BTW, I can guarantee that your board is not a Frye.
A phone call and an email pic to Bird's Surf Shack in San Diego could reveal some clues.
