Bob Simmons’ Sandwich Surfboard Sold For $40,000

Any object with a lot of history is worth a ton of money. The same applies to a half-century old surfboard that was sold for a record $40,000 at the Hawaiian Islands Vintage Surf Auction last Sunday. We hear that the event raked in some $767,000 from 379 enthusiastic bidders who came together for their passion for surfboards and related memorabilia.

But as we said, the object that stole the show was the 11-ft Bob Simmons Foam Sandwich Board that was built around the 50s. Apparently, a bidder from Australia was so taken up by this beauty that he or she didn’t think twice when glancing at the price tag. As a matter of fact, the same person also took the second most expensive item there – a 1955 Matt Kivlin 10-ft Balsa Board for $39,000. Boy, some people indeed have the luck and love, not to mention the riches too.

Among the non-surfboard items, it was a family album of legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku that was the most expensive at $14,000. It ws sold to a Hawaii bidder.
