Help with Abel Gomes 1910-1967 Cigar Boards/Hollow Surfboards

Im looking for more information with my search on his involvement with helping tom blake with his early boards. Here is an article from 50's.[img_assist|nid=1058765|title=new hawaiian industy|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=0|height=0]

Im sorry i thought you would be able to read this article, here is what it says


Abel lays claim to having made the first all-hollow surfboard. He got the idea in 1925 with a cigar board he made for tom blake which he had partly hallow out. "Blake beat everyone with that board in one Ala Wai Canal race, so the next year I made the first hollow board. Afterwards, blake made some too, and got the patent on them"
