He's been making boards in Sydney since 1967 but that one you've got may not be worth much mate.It's a typical standard 70s single fin but not much of a design(paint job)on it's just plain plus not real good condition.I know some of he's longboards sell for not to bad dollars if they are in good condition.He still makes boards today http://ronwadesurfbo...

Did ya end up measuring that carpet mate?...

This one is not as vintage as yours but probably in a bit better cond and has a spray job.I'de be surprised if he gets $480 for it.Wade's for some unknown reason weren't very collectable but he's a brilliant board shaper/maker!...https://www.gumtree....

Here's some more of his decals including yours,click on R and scroll down to three quarters of the page...http://www.surfresea...
