So the wife brought this home the other day.  Someone she knows was going to throw it in the trash.  Typical story... kids are gone and don't need this crap around the house.  Hopefully you guys can help with some info on this deck.  I've not come across one before and haven't had any luck digging up any details on it.  Sure looks late 70's to me.  The Indy Suspension and Pomona Pipe and Pool stickers are killer.

At first glance it looks like a a Boulder Board, as were the K-Beams good Variflex boards and some Dogtowns etc.
Is it lots of thin plys side on rather than just the usual 5.

Very well could be a Boulder deck.  Looks like 7 plys to me. Top and bottom plys are like micro thin.  Set it on top of my Airbeam for shape comparison.  Pretty damn close.

Even the cut of the one remaining rail reminds me of the "Martinez" rails
There was a name for the thin layers someting tuff or similar

That remaining rail is two thin pieces of wood with a shim between them where they are screwed to the deck.   Don't see that very often !
