7'8'' Reverse Vee by Maurice Cole: Tom Curren loved it

The famous 7'8'' Reverse Vee shaped by Maurice Cole for Tom Curren will be sold at the California Gold Vintage Surf Auction on September 26th, 2015, at the Culver City Veterans Memorial Museum.

Tom Curren celebrated his only victory in Haleiwa (Wyland Gallery Pro 1991) against Martin Potter, Tom Carroll, and Johnny Boy Gomez, with this stickerless magic board.

The Surfing Heritage And Culture Center (SHACC), a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, presenting and promoting surfing's heritage will sell Curren's winning gun to raise funds for the institution and for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).

"We had such a great turnout at our previous auction and are very much looking forward to another successful event as we begin to accumulate some of the most valuable surfboards and surfing memorabilia on the market," explains Scott Bass, executive director of the California Gold Vintage Surf Auction.

The SHACC's auction committee is focusing on surfboards and memorabilia with a California flair from the 1920s through the 1980s. The team is anticipating between 40 and 50 prime vintage surfboards for the live auction, and at least 200 items, including many boards, for the silent auction.
