Ken Merrill’s Surfboard Museum Tour – VIDEO, Part 5

DENNIS – The video tour of Ken Merrill’s collection of more than 100 classic surfboards ends with a look at his most valuable board, which was built in 1966. He purchased it by paying for it over several years.

Of course, it has a story – a twisting, funny, years-long story of how he acquired it, all told in a few very entertaining minutes.

And it even has a side-note about when surfers needed licenses for their surfboards – because this board actually has a spot for such.

Be sure to watch until the end, where Merrill explains the reason behind the collection when we asked, simply, why collect surfboards?

And you really must see Ken Merrill’s favorite TV show. If you think about it, you will not be surprised.
