Description

1969 Hansen by Gerry Lopez 7' 2"

Here's a rare late 60s Hansen by Pipeline master Gerry Lopez. Of course it is common knowledge Lopez went on to establish Lightning Bolt, the most successful surfboard company of the 1970s.

Lopez boards are highly prized by astute collectors. Here's an uncommon opportunity to grab a beautiful board built in the midst of the shortboard revolution by one of the most collectible shapers to date.

This board comes in its original untouched condition! The stand-out orange resin tint bottom and rail wrap are enhanced by the custom black resin pin lines on both the deck and bottom. The top-drawer translucent amber fin comes in the original adjustable veri-set fin box. Clearly seen under the glass is serial number 26654 and the foam is still substantially white. This sharp looking board would be a must addition to any collection of boards that includes guns, Lightning Bolts, transitional or Hawaiian boards.

You will see this sharp board pictured in the full color hardcover coffee table book, Vintage Surfboards II, available later this year.

We could find no records of this seldom seen board appearing at auction.

Pre-auction estimate: $1,500.-$2,000. No Reserve
