ON THE AUCTION BLOCK: BUTTE FAMILY “V” BOARD PACIFIC SYSTEMS HOMES
BUTTE FAMILY “V” BOARD PACIFIC SYSTEMS HOMES
While in real estate the rule may be “location, location, location, in surfboard collecting it’s “provenance, provenance, provenance.” And they don’t come much better than this. In 1929 the surfing son of a co-founder of Pacific Systems Homes convinced the company, that built prefabricated homes, to build and market surfboards. Meyers Butte was this young man’s name and in the mid ’30s he custom ordered this board for his son Wilson. Wilson then gave this board to his son Victor and in the early ’60s, Meyers painted the red “V” on the deck and added the red fin for ease of surfing for his grandson. This custom construction, with only redwood as stringers and no redwood to protect the rails, results in a unique board built and owned by the patriarch of the “first family” of surfboard manufacturing — Meyers Butte. The original Waikiki Surfboards painted logo remains in excellent condition at the tail of the deck and the overall original varnish patina remains on both the deck and bottom. A PSH Butte family surfboard – California Gold !!
