    Hello :-) I'm trying to identify and put a value on a vintage surfboards

    Hi everyone, i'v got that board in my surfshop and would like to find out more data about it, also the guy is asking 450$ for it.
    Here is what i can read:
    TOP: Tropical Blend, shaped by "Hora"
    BOTTOM: Pro Manga , Hawaii Dakine, Hora.

    I'll try to post a picture, the board is like a classic single fin from the 80's i think.

    Thank's a lot for your help or knowledge :-)

    That board doesn't have much "name" value, and we can't see the shape very well.

    YODA. Yeshyesh. Yoda you seek.

    Sadly this is Swellinfo and while it may look like Dagobah, and don't let the reek fool you, TANSTAAFL, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
    Would you like to buy a time share? You are not leaving until you buy a timeshare, no on the timeshare?

    Then HELLO THREAD or GTFO

    Please don't use the Swellinfo image uplooder, it is poo.
    Imgur much nicer, see?

    The tard is wise in the ways of the S'more. That marshmallow's burnt, you can tell by the boards below it. See kids, this is why you use board bags and only go surfing at night.

    poorly repaired ding


    Shapes by Hero Threade.


    Tropical Blends is still in biz. Their logo is on Stanley's and they have a website. Said in 2014 that they "started" 36 years ago, when they mean "started" I assume they mean just a rice paper logo glassed on a board and the shop came later; but who knows. Basically a small surf, local shop in Hawaii that's still around.

    So value wise, it would help if you took a full length pic of the deck and the bottom; but it doesn't really matter. I'm taking a stab here, but it's probably a shortboard thruster from the 80s, right? Glassed on fiberglass fins?
    Sunburnt on the bottom with a couple of questionable minor repairs?

    i could tell you what it's worth, but you would probably get offenses
    Everyone gets offenses

    Good fences make good neighbhors though, right?

    Tell us more about your surf shop? How much is your finest bar of wax and what do you pair it with, red or white wine? Red meat, seafood, or fowl? Is it organic? I only eat organic wax

    I would usually say "your" as opposed to "you are"; but in this case it works

    The board is NOT a "classic" under any definition. Older, yes, classic...no.
    Just opinion from an old fart that has been surfing 56 years.
