A surfboard is very easy to make. Start with a popsicle stick, large or small available at craft stores. File it to the shape you want, add the fin, paint.

I have a set of the three 'boards (and the decals for two of them) from the Revell Surfite kit left. You can see what they look like here: http://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/810/revell-surfite-figure-daddy-roth

If those interest you, PM me, please.

Why not make some? There are plenty of surfboard pictures on the net for you to use as a pattern. Make a cardboard template of half the board. Trace one side, then flip it over for the other. .1 inch plastic will give you about the right thickness. A longboard typically be will be somewhere between 9 and 10 feet. Once you get the shape, round the edges.

Real surfboards are not flat The front third will curve up 2-3 inches, and the rear third will curve up an inch, maybe two, but always less than the front. Add one or more fins, depending on the vintage, and you'll have a nice surfboard.
