    Looks in really good condition, is it air tight?

    Did you see that paipo on ebay, went for £50, I put a bid in but thought Id be bidding against you so left it.

    Yes saw that paipo, think it was a back yarder cut down from an old mal, not my cuppa..

    The surfo is air tight, don't think it really has been used, it is at my sisters in Melbourne now with some other old boards of mine, including this farfor paipo.... (anyway off topic Laughing )

    The "Farfor" paipo is in Melbourne, hopefully my sister will bring it over on her next trip over. Quotes for shipping have been astronomically high.

    The only grip on the surfo is the two front handles.
