Weird Paipo Surfcraft thingies

Surfy Surfy  is housing 4 orphaned Paipo type thingies (for surfing prone on yer belly!)

These are foam and fiberglass Paipos, think of them as a hybrid between  bodyboards and kneeboards, even though the Paipo predates both of those. These Paipos are 4′. (our friend Sarah pictured in 5’4″)

This one is exciting. It’s an authentic Insanity board from the mid 1980’s. Shaped by Gary Hanel for a man known only as Vern. GH shaped dozens of these things for Vern’s Insanity label. Usually finless, this one was converted into a 5 fin Bonzer in the mid 1990’s.

Hold onto the handle and super barreled.

The first summer I worked at Moonlight Glassing as a teenager I handsanded dozens of these boards. I clearly remember that chime/flute rail blend being a challenge.

It’s cool that Vern had foam and fiberglass bodyboards built 25 years ago. Sadly Vern passed away years ago. I’m sure he would be stoked to see all the nouveau shapers making similar boards these days.

This crazy thing was made by Russ Hoyte. It’s got all kinds of hydrodynamic stuff going on with the bottom.

This one has a logo that reads ‘Lap Extreme” and appears to be glassed with Kevlar. Shaper unknown.

This one is a legit, a Ron Romanksy who is a legend in the kneeboard world.

These 4 unique surf craft are for sale at Surfy Surfy. Price is $200 each or get all 4 for $500 cash.
UPDATE: these boards are SOLD, thanks!

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.

Ellis Ericson and his Craigslist Bonzer in Bali

Ellis Ericson has been getting good use out the Campbell Brothers 5 fin Bonzer he picked up off Craigslist for $100 (he’s still got that crazy Knost flex fin in there too).
