Golden age Mirandon Twin Pin with stabilizer center fin as seen at the Hydrodynamica Remember the Future PST exhibit. All this has happened before and will happen again.
Back at Sacred Craft in October a cool longhair surfer kid dropped off this vintage board at our booth shaped by Bill Shrosbree (pictured) aka Shros.
We are pretty sure it was originally a single fin with the Freestyle quad boxes added later.
Shros shaped the Rip Curl label boards out of Moonlight Glassing in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
Friend of Surfy Surfy Mark buys and sells lots of unique vintage surfboards. A couple of years ago he came across this incredible Campbell Brothers Bonzer Light Vehicle. Glassed and airbrushed by one of the original Bonzer test pilots Cliff Collinge. It’s a safe guess the art is a tribute to the famous 1973 play or 1977 film adaption of Equus (I confess to have never seen Equus and knew little about it before looking up the linked Wikipedia page. The story sounds a bit creepy but I am digging the equine godhead theme art).

Malcolm Campbell’s 40th Year of the Bonzer reincarnation of his personal
Candy Corn Kandy Korn board. Portrait of Don Van Vliet on the decks. Original artwork by Cliff Collinge. New airbrushing by Peter St Pierre.
5’10” Mike Hyson shaped for Peter St Pierre under the Bahne Surfboards label in 1969.
Advanced rails and design for the era. Artwork and pinlines by Peter. Iconic symbols of Charlie Chaplin and Mickey Mouse were in reaction to all the Eastern symbols Hynson and crew would have Peter draw on their boards.
Found in a thrift store in 2001 by Tim Elsner. Restored by Richard Reddsurf.
Survived all these decades without getting a leash plug installed.

6’5″ Wayne Lynch under the Rip Curl Surfboards label shaped by Bill Shrosbree at Moonlight Glassing in the early days of the Moonlight factory circa ’79/80. Wayne used to fly over from Australia and stay in Leucadia and surf and shape. Some of his templates are still floating around in the Moonlight archives.
It’s in great shape except for that weird discoloration line across the bottom. It even has the original fin.
