Jackson Surfboards

Wall art at the Jackson Surfboard factory.
After more than 50 years, the Jackson surfboard factory closed its doors in 2015.  This 2015 picture shows Jim Parkinson glassing one of the last boards on the production line, and behind him is some interesting  wall art depicting when Brian Jackson had his hip replaced.  Penned by one of the workers, the “Fantastic hip joint factory” shows the process Jacko underwent during his operation .   Tim Vanderlaan photo
