...and in 1988 the few remaining imperial units were removed from general use.

E gads! Surfboards are always measured in imperial units; metric would be uncouth!

I did actually measure it in and noted in in MM but then noticed inscribed on the body is the dimensions in inches. Not being a surfer - I owned the board and tried a bit but never really got into it - Thought well if it's in Ft and Inches on the board .....

You did good MonkeyBoy. It's a fun looking board. I only understand surfboard and skateboard measurements in inches. If you try to tell me the dimensions in metric I have no idea.

Plumbers still work in imperial as well as metric. I worked at a plumbing supply joint for a while and had to do a lot of converting in my head.

But sadly not the waves. Last time I surfed Wollamai it was 1.5 metres. Back in the good old days it would have been 6 foot!

Actually waves are measured in terms of ft, swell is metric. If you read the swell forecast in the paper it'll be metric, swellnet.com.au'll be imperial....
