Bonzer Archaeology: 1990’s Bonzer/Thruster

Recently I spotted this orange egg sticking out of the bushes at my neighbors house.  I got excited when I saw the iconic Campbell Brothers logo so I trespassed and dug it out. 

It’s a rare Bonzer/Thruster! 

Extra rare because this board was built with the now defunct Red-X fin system. 

The best part of pulling old surfboards out of the bushes are all the creepy spiders and insects stuck to it. 
Lots of little dings, but nothing major. 

Red-X was unique in that it went all the way thru the board and screwed in from the deck. It was pretty strong but most people hated it. 

Nice outline! 

Here are the dims. 7’3″ x 21 1/4″ x 2 13/16′ 

The Campbell Bros Bonzer concaves work insane on thrusters. 

1990’s  Malcolm Campbell logo. 

I had Randy the Ding Guy do a clean up and patch job. You may see me riding it this week.

Resurrection Skip Frye

A local customer scored this 1970’s Skip Frye single fin at a garage sale. It was pretty beat so we sent it to Randy for a patch job on the open dings and a new hot coat and gloss coat.
The old repairs with abalone and sea shells are a nice touch.
I like restorations that show the original patina and tell the history of the board.
This one survived decades without getting a leash plug installed which is amazing.
This one will ride again.
Maybe there will be some good scores at our Used Board Swap Saturday October 12th

Tim Orr’s Refurb 70’s Sunset

From the inbox,

 Aloha Thursday JP, Howzit!
 Here’s a follow up on the Sunset board that I am finishing up on today. I did an acid splash resin job on the bottom to hide the dings. The topside will be painted on the inside of the cutlaps with black chalkboard paint …it is to be used as signage for a shop up at the 4 Seasons here in Kona. I just thought you guys might dig seeing it…I thought your Dad might like the Sunset splash job. The board was trashed…now it’s functional art.
 Take care, peace & aloha from Big Island,
