SNEAK PEEK AT WHAT'S TO COME
6 Weeks to Hawaiian Islands Vintage Surf Auction
Presented by Quiksilver
Above: From the James Arness Collection - Fred Hemmings Oil Painting Circa Mid-1960's.This is one of five items from the James Arness Colection. This particular piece hung in Jim's dressing room at the CBS studio while he was filming "Gunsmoke". Because he liked Makaha so much, photographer, Dr. Don James, had given Arness the original negative from this famous shot of Fred Hemmings shooting the Makaha "Bowl". Arness then had his studio artist paint this fantastic, huge 5' X 9' plywood backed rendition. Unfortunately, as luck would have it, the artist ruined the negative while he was painting the piece and Jim always felt bad about never being able to return the slide. The picture then hung in his Hollister Ranch house after leaving "Gunsmoke". Superb original condition oil painting, shown here with Fred Hemmings himself!. Photo courtesy Dana Edmunds.
Pre-auction estimate: $3000-$7000.
Above: General Veneer Hollow Wood 5'0" 1940's.This is one of the very popular early wood boards that were the equivalent of the modern boogie board. Built using a hollow construction tecnique, they were very popular for body boarding because of their light weight and built in handles. Made of mahagony plywood and varnished, this particular board features the "Aloha" state seal of Hawaii water-slide decal. All orignial condition.
Pre-auction estimate: $2,500-$4,500.
Above: Greg Noll - Mickey Dora "Da Cat" Model 9'8" 1967.Without a doubt, one of the best boards in the auction! A never ridden, exceptional Mickey Dora "Da Cat" Model! Perfect, beautiful red/black swirl removable fin with matching red/black tint color work on the bottom and deck inlay. White foam with no tanning, slot bottom. This board is in superb condition with no dings, no dents, and only a very slight shatter from being transported, otherwise a showroom quality original! Unquestionably the most sought after "model" board. Try to find another Cat Model as good as this!
Pre-auction estimate: $10,000-$15,000 NO RESERVE
