Excludes Surfboards

Gift from the Heart

On our shop opening night, in the middle of all the chaos, Eric “Bird” Huffman and his family walked in with this authentic Caster surfboard and presented it to me as a good luck gift. Needless to say I was overwhelmed. Billy Caster was my Dad’s best friend when I little kid and his influence on me has stuck with me my whole life. I own the last skateboard Caster ever made, but I have never owned one of his surfboards. I am so stoked I don’t even know what to say.

I was also honored that members of the Caster clan showed up, including Dave Caster’s new baby boy, Billy Caster.
Bird has been a staple at the iconic surf shop in Pacific Beach, South Coast/Windnsea. He is also a great resource when it comes to surfing history and vintage boards.

Caster Channel Hull Replica #1

This is the winning Caster Chris O’Rourke/Channel Hull replica from the 2008 Sacred Craft Expo shaped by Ricky Carroll. This board belongs to Sacred Craft organizer Scott Bass. My Dad gave Bassy permission to include the bamboo sidebite fins because Bill Caster would approve.
