Restoration- 1968 Bing Nuuhiwa

I got an interesting call from my old high school dean this afternoon.  Hearing his voice brought back some memories.

I had a habit of sneaking off campus to surf during the lunch hour and most of the time not returning until the following morning. Consequentially, I spent some time in the dean’s office

Anyways, the dean was a surfer long before those days and still has his original high school board, a 1968 Bing! It’s a ten foot David Nuuhiwa Noserider model in need of a full restoration. 

Thought I would post the process here.  This is a special board for a special friend and I’m going to pull all my tricks outta the hat to really make this Bing sing!
