Surfboards in which kits?

I seem to recall seeing surfboards included in a kit or kits sometime in the past but I can’t recall which one or ones it was. Can anyone remember seeing them?

Monogram '30 Woody Wagon from back when...maybe some of the reissues had the boards too.

Cadillac Surf Shark has them.

I also found these on Ebay last year or so. Probably from the '64 Malibu surf wagon.

I'm always looking for the thrusters (3 fin) as that was the era that I used to surf in. I do like the older ones though I still have an old G and S longboard. When that thing hits you, you feel it! 🤕

The top board looks to be a Yater Spoon. A popular design from back in the 70s in case you want to impress anyone with surfing trivia 😄. The bottom board looks like just a typical vintage board. Thes look like they come with a roof rack too!

Revell  Ford F100, the early kit that warped so badly; think it had one.  I found some window-blind slat material that works okay, and some PVC strips from a hdwe. store that aren't bad.  Laminating two produces a thick board; lot's a sanding and shaping thojgh.  Not available from online suppliers?    Wick

Good suggestion Johnny. That was going to be my approach, but I’d probably just use styrene sheet. Being basically lazy, I thought I’d first check to see if there were some I could pirate from a kit.

Thanks everyone for your very helpful responses. I knew I’d come to the right place! 
I’m planning a surf wagon build of the AMT Nova wagon and I’d like to throw a surfboard or two up on it’s roof.
