This board sort of landed in my lap - best I can tell, it's mid 60's in origin, but other than the CON label and a nice tail block and fin, has no markings to help me identify it. Any vintage board experts out there with any ideas?

Longboard.net will also fill you in.
Onefin is also the con expert, I'm pretty sure he owns a few of them
..Whore it to death then sell the corpse on Craigslist... (used to be Ebay but eff Ebay and Paypal)

Stocker CON 64ish?  Unique tail block.  Standard CON fin way back past the tail.  They don't like to turn.  Have to be moving and get way back on the tail if you want to change direction.

Thanks, jsk - I'll ask him if he ever gets around these parts again - haven't seen him in a long time - but heard he's doing well out east.

Eh, turning is for sissies. Trimming straight down the line is where it's at. 😉👍
