that is a BEAUTIFUL board. I have a thing for the Russ Short Model .. I recently just purchased one used from a local shop, 6’3, 19.75, 2 and 5/8. 5 fin. Such a sick board.
I’m curious though, with the proper design initiative in mind for this model, is this the ideal dimension for me to be riding? I am about 5’9, about 178lbs. I’ve been riding the board with a full 5.4.3 wetsuit on, and im having a blast on it. If i were to order one from Malcolm, I wonder what dimension he would suggest, and at what wave size would I be riding the same model, only bigger ..
ask Malcolm Campbell himself. He helped my brother determine what was best for him and it turned out to be the cleanest board of all time.
I remember like it was yesterday late 70,s as a grom I was out at north jetty (STRAND) should`nt have even been out on a day that big Russ screaming PADDLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I caught the biggest wave of my life.That was the day my balls dropped!.never had a chance to thank him.
love the orange with a red pinline.Whats the fin arrangement on that model
Who is Russ Short ? ASP world champ before ?
Russ Short was a legendary test pilot for the Bonzer team of the 70’s… He is truly the ‘Chuck Yeager’ of BonzerWorld…..
The real testing ground, for Russ and the Bonzer back then was, Oxnards famed Silver Strand beach…
Ask Simon Anderson to swallow his pride and he will tell you the fin arrangement.
Wow was just watching the Russ Short Video on your page.. He is flying on that board. I have not yet been fortunate to try a bonzer… But I am trying to save up!!!
just looked att a classic shot of Russ from a 1978 SURFER mag this morning…
looks like that board is part of the Oxnard City Hall or something. any details on the location?
yep a Bonzer 3 is for me!
