The 5 fin Bonzer Surfy Stubbie is inspired by a board that shaper Mani Caro ordered from Malcolm Campbell last Fall.
Mani shapes super nice Stubbies and has made them in quads, single fins and even Bonzers.
(see the Swallowtail Society Tumblr blog)
I rode Mani's Malcolm Stubbie on a really good day earlier this year and it got me stoked.
Really good speed and flow, it went great in the lip backside in head high surf.
Since then we've been filtering a few stock Bonzer Stubbies into the shop.
This 6'0" is pretty sweet. Nice and light for the volume. 4oz volan deck patches have become standard for us. Wetsanded gloss, no color. Note the nose thickness (see photo 5).
We did this one with FCS because it seems like the versatile kind of board you'd want to slip into your travel bag.
I would ride the 7" fin for that tail.
It's available via our online store if you want it, price includes all 5 fins: clicky
