    1. I would think so , cant be to many of them still around , But ill never sell the board just pass it on to my grand sons.

  1. Yes I remember these ….my Dad was so mad that we had to get these ..I being the youngest of Seven Kids …One Of my brothers and I almost got arrested because my Greek Elimator Permit was placed on the nose not the in the location which was 6” from the fin on bottom of board…and my brother did not have a ID as we were j walking across seashore ave at 36th street going home …by the way I was 8 years old …and now I am 60 …

  2. I have a 1966 surfboard permit on my board. Mine is actually a yellow sticker. Did they change the permit colors yearly?

      1. I just obtained a Harbour 9’6” with a Newport Beach permit with a 1967 date, #2211. Do you know how many years they made surfers get stickers?
        (the surfboard itself has the number of 936 on it which I discovered as the 936th board that Harbour made)
