Excludes Surfboards

The magic 6’8″ elevated wing Bonzer5 egg

Pictured in my 2010 quiver photo is this 6’8″ Bonzer5 egg. This board is pretty much magic.
Instead of a round nose this board has a more pulled in nose which is helpful in beachbreaks and steep sections.
The elevated wing or e-wing makes the board turn 3″ to 6″ shorter than it really is. This board turns like a 6’4″, which is also helpful. The e-wing leaves that nice hip where your backfoot goes and pulls in the tail.
The 5 fin Bonzer with e-wing is a lot of work to shape, glass and sand. The design is something that everyone at the factory believes in so that helps with production.
The sideview of the board shows a blend of good paddling and performance foil.
The elevated wing was created by shaper Max McDonald, an ally in Bonzer Nation.
A crisply foiled performance rail.
The egg is the one genre of surfboard that many shapers and surfers do not take seriously. I see a lot of funky eggs with fat blobby rails and lame outlines and sad rocker. The Campbell Brothers Bonzer eggs are real surfboards meant to be surfed like you mean it. You can take off deep, get barreled, carve a roundhouse cutback and link sections all the way down the line. The are not some goofy gimmick.
Remember, with great egg comes great responsibility. Do not abuse the wave catching powers of the egg. Thank you.

    My 6’10 bonzer-inspired egg was a great investment. It makes surfing a pleasure; not that surfing wasn’t already, but you get the idea.

    My 7’2″ (Moonlight and MC) bonzer egg has an unbelievable wave range and is one of a few really “magic” boards I have owned over 15+ years of surfing. Pulled in nose and rounded pin.

    Another spellbinding post, thanks JP. Please take us through the rest of your quiver like that!

    Looking at your quiver, 6’8″ is a comparatively large board. In what type of conditions do you typically ride it? These boards (and the pods) have always intrigued me. I am close to your size, and have never considered ordering an egg in that size. I always figured 6’0″ to 6’2″ would be the right size for me. I have a 6’5″ Russ Short model that works unreal in overhead surf and beyond.

    I could easily go shorter with this board but I like the glide. You peeps can demo this board by the way. It’s at Moonlight Glassing right now

    How big are you? I am 6’1″ and 210. What size bonzer egg would you recommend?

    I like the white egg in photo 5, the outline is beautiful. Maybe I can snap a board during the coming swell(s). That way, the wife won’t kill me if I order one.

    Great responsibility. Like not showing up five-strong at an already busy not-North County reef? Like that board did today?

    I loaned it to a Canadian surfer for the weekend, but he didn’t have a posse. He was just traveling with his wife.
