Hollow wooden 12′ Kookbox surfboard made in the late 1930’s-early 40’s. Previously owned by a WWII veteran stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii named Don Simpson. After being killed in action, Don’s belongings along with this surfboard were shipped from Hawaii to his brother in California. Featuring a hollow ribbed construction, designed like the wing of an airplane. This breakthrough in surfboard construction ushered in mass adoption of surfing for the first time as it significantly reduced the weight of surfboards from 80-100 lbs to well under 50 lbs. The revolutionary design was patented by the legendary Tom Blake. Don’t miss your chance to own this remarkable piece of surfing history!
