I stumbled across this interview and ad with Malcolm Campbell and Campbell Brothers Bonzers (and Max McDonald too!) in a 1989 issue of Breakout magazine, which is the year I started riding 5 fin Bonzers (age 19).
Glen Sakamoto just published a nice interview with Malcolm Campbell on Liquid Salt

Surfy Surfy Surf Shop in located in Leucadia, California, which is the north section of the city of Encinitas. When we launched this blog in 2005, part of our goal was to spread the word to the global internet surf community about our talented local shapers shaping and surfing in Encinitas.
Now that we are all connected by blogs, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the term “local shaper” no longer means what it did 20 years ago. Now we all can order, shape and ship each other surfboads coast to coast and continent to continent.
That said, regional shapers are influenced by the communities in which they live and certain areas become hubs of surfboard building. Encinitas enjoys a long history of influential shapers and surfboard companies. This Surfline feature touches on a few long time local shapers and a few accepted transplants. Several shapers profiled are in regular rotation in the Surfy-verse.

The under water shot of the Microgrooves in action was done by Warren Bolster. The rider is Kenny Mann, the sander at Moonlight Glassing. Apparently Kenny ran over Bolster during this photo shoot at Swami’s and gashed him pretty good.
