This is an early 1960s Zipees Sidewalk Surfboard. Titled "Lahana M-444" which is written on the top deck. Made in Chicago. The article below has the history of this amazing board.

Sixties – Zipees – Sidewalk Surfboard
The Zipees Sidewalk Surfboard was manufactured in the 60s by Mannin MFG Corp. in Chicago, Illinois. It measures in at 6 ½” x 27” and has a clean template shape with beveled side rails to mimic a surfboard. This particular model is called the Lahana M-444 and features unbranded roller skate style trucks each attached to the board with two large rivets. In an early marking technique at the time the board has green Zipees clay wheels with color coordinated green action cushions and sleek two color top graphics. They also made a steel-wheeled version.

This board has been used but is in overall good condition. The deck shows the most wear. The writing on the deck top is legible but is scratched up. The board has a crack in it which is visible in the photos. The green clay wheels and matching cushions are in overall wonderful condition. The brown (part of the two color graphic) is faded. Also there is someone's name written on the bottom.

Please keep in mind this is authentic vintage. I do my best to list all flaws and issues.
