Don't know what to say about this. Comments welcome.

Are these even goats?

Maybe someone can ID the board. LeeD? ISO?

At least spring is almost here!

Cannot ID the board, but those be goats.

Probably the reason for no sail for the board is goats have hooves, making it extremely difficult to hang on to the boom.

That also explains the wear pattern on the deck.

The board is a 1965 GTO, aka a "Goat", shaped by a native American leader named Chief Pontiac.

Ha! Now those were great cars and a great analogy.

To me the board looks like a relatively early high-performance board from the late '80s. Like a Seatrend with no graphics.

No wonder the goats messed up the footstraps too.

Except they had no brakes. Fastest-accelerating off-the-shelf American car if not even the world, top speed of 140+ 50 years ago, and useless brakes. I survived mine, but it was dicey at times. I VERY successfully modified my brakes against Pontiac's advice.

But if this isn't a total hijack, I don't know what is. So sorry., but that's about as close as I can get on guessing what that board really is. I can't even tell from this angle how far forward the mast track is.

The wide point of the board is more forward, but the mast track isn't that far forward, so I'm guessing that the board might date from 1991-1993. You would need to get closer to find out much more, but that would mean joining those hungry goats in the pen.

That's the surfing Goat Dairy on Maui. They've got some classic used boards and sails on the place. Goats be hard on equipment, so no new stuff for them.

Nice place to go when looking for touristy non-water based activity to take the whole family. Upcounty Maui.

Well.....mid 14's in the quarter topping out at about 98mph for the big blocks. 140mph? not so much.

Hey Gerritt,

Too funny. I should have known.

Hope the CA coast is waking up. Have fun.

That's top quarter mile speed. I'm talking real world ... the open road.
