there is no room for a sell out CI thruster in the world

I see right through this. Malcom probably shaped both of them. Either that or Marlin did the CI
Did I answer the trick question?
Don’t I win a free leash or something?

The CI was actually shaped by Al Merrick, it was a wedding gift from him. The board was made in the summer of 2000. It was glassed with “D size” cloth and has held up real well. I stopped riding it after Burton bought Channel Islands because I figured now a the board is a collector’s item. If I start surfing it again I would like to pull the plastic fins out of it and try to find some of those nicer composite fins Red-X used to make.
The Malcolm Bonzer is a real gem. Trusty Dusty rode it at 3rd Point during that epic April ’07 swell. It doesn’t see much action around here in Mushville but maybe this winter?
