Lifeguards Use Enormous Surfboards (Dec, 1937)

Actually, this is just a P.R. photo of all of the little people who starred in the Wizard of Oz. The boards are normal size.

Lifeguards Use Surfboards

LIFEGUARDS at Los Angeles, Calif., have been equipped with new surfboards and new inhalator machines to facilitate their task of patroling five miles of beach. The surfboards are constructed like airplane wings, being of hollow construction, and are said to be much faster than the old type lifeboats.

    Those look like 15 ft long boards. In those days they were made of plywood and hollow inside but still very heavy by today’s standards.
