One of the very first boogie boards, this board was acquired personally from Tom Morey in 1972 by Rus Calisch, who was then the advertising director for International Surfing Magazine. It even predates the Morey Boogie name, which was trademarked in 1973. The board measures about 47″ long, 25″ wide, 2.25″ thick, and 3.75 lbs. Early boards like this allowed the rider to feel the wave through the board much more than with today’s stiffer, improved bodyboards.
