Stringerless Sunday


This is a 1968/1969 G&S Farrelly Stringerless...with a twist. The wide point was moved up well ahead of center, echoing the trend toward racier outlines even for small wave boards. But instead of pulling the overall width in, they left it wide, and maintained moderate V in the tail.

Here's a more conventional Farrelly Stringerless outline...

At first glance, the top board has a Frankenstein quality...a mix of seemingly disparate parts. But I'm guessing it was a pretty interesting board to ride on the right wave!
