Do you love boards & footage from the 60's? I do... The trim, the glide, the history.
I'm picking up a 66/67 Hobie Gary Propper model tomorrow just in time for our trip to Vico for the Surf Coast Winter Classic. Can't wait to try it out on some uncrowded points down the Great Ocean rd.
Below is an orginal Ad of the board ( mine is identical ) and also some footage that I think is just awesome, how's the commentary.

Layback Winter Classic

The Laybacks held their annual Winter Classic on the 3rd July at Bellambi Point. It was 2-3ft with the occassional bigger one, and was a perfect day all round. A great comp run by a great bunch of people, this was our first year at this comp and we'll be back next year for sure.
Thanks for a great day!
