Looking for SN assistance. Back in the early/mid 80's I lived behind Jim Pollards house in Caloundra. I used about hang out with 2 of his 3 kids. Mostly his middle daughter. I surfed with some of his "team riders" down at Happy Valley and Moffats but even as a street rat I wasnt allowed to (knowingly) travel far. I got back in touch with Jim around 2008/2009 but time challenged us both to varying degrees. I tried to find out how is 3 girls were without success but that time of my life holds very fond memories of a very little grom growing up.

What Im chasing, is one of his mid early 80's Island Call logo'd boards. It would be a treasure of mine to hold and keep to remind me of my early surfin childhood. Soooo many good memories. I still remember looking up into Jims house at night and he had this huge rhino chaser hanging on his wall. Shaped in his backyard at that stage only a few boards so I know my chances are small but I'd be ever grateful if anyone knew of one.

I do have a pic of one but not sure how to post it up...

Thanks in advance.
