The original “Jr. Mint” Bonzer5 landed in our shop the other day.
This board was built before the whole “retro” trend started. At the time I thought this board was really odd, but now it looks normal.
Despite the large BONZER logo people will still stop and ask you if this board is a Bonzer.
This is the ugliest ding on the board. Maybe put an Hilary ’08 sticker over it or something.
The side fins have had some repair but are watertight. Comes with a 6″ center fin.
Which one is Malcolm and which one is Duncan?
The dims are hard to read but I think it’s 6’10” x 21-ish” wide x 3″ thick. It’s a wave catcher fer shure.
This board was part of the famous super quiver featured in an issue of The Surfer’s Journal.

This IS the one that started it all for retro Malcolms.
Lots of memories. I could not not let go of this board until I was certain Malcolm could make it over and over again. The Bumble Bee came from this board. Tim

Tim. Is this still for sale? Is it a surf only board? It can be put on display at a semi-surfboard museum/showcase where I live that gets TONS of looks. The board has paid its dues in wave count so retiring it to showcase is ok imo. plus, CBros will get a nice plug with a caption history of the surfboard and all.

Anon, I’m not selling the board. I sold the board awhile back. Talk to JP at Moonlight.
