Thanks to Mick Mock.
These Popouts appeared in 1970.
Note that like most mass-produced craft, most references in surf literature are derogatory.
Usually a 5ft 6" X 20" Egg adaptation
Commonly used stringerless glassed blanks with minimal shaping to reduce prices by about 40%.
Often full pigment, sometimes marbled.
Fins usually have no rovings, being mitred into the blank.
They were manufactured by Shane Surfboards ('Standard'), Wallace Surfboards ('Junior'), Farrelly Surfboards, and Merrin Surfboards, Queensland.
Note : The template of this board is untypical (strongly based on Ted Spencer's 'White Kite' 1969, See # 46) and the blank has been scored down the centre so that the laminating resin has filled it to produce a false glue-line stringer.
