Alpha Omega Twin Fin Fever!

I love my Campbell Brothers Alpha Omega Twin Fin that I got in 2011.

Check out those concaves!

The A/O is special because Malcolm puts the Light Vehicle bottom on these, a secret formula of hydrodynamics given to the Campbell Brothers by a race of aquatic aliens.

I recently had this board retrofitted with FCS plugs so I can run this little stablizer fin in it. One could argue that is a cop out, but being north of 40 it’s really helped me out with how freaking loose this thing is off the top. You can get one of these fins too: clicky

Super rad surf star Dave Rastovich just got 2 A/Os from Malcolm. Pictured is Surfy Surfy shop rat Jared picking up the boards at the factory for “Rasta” (we got J-Rad a breezy job at Billabong, a surf company that sponsors Rasta).

Expert surfer Taylor Knox recently picked up his A/O. He opted for a deep black opaque resin tint. Arthur C Clarke and Stan Kubrick approved.

Oh my, this here is an orphaned Alpha Omega Bonzer Twin Fin. It needs a home.

5’11” x 20″ x 2 9/16″
These surfboards are pretty rare. If you think you’ve got some performance twin fin skills then you should pick this thing up.

1971 Bonzer Replica, Replica

We commissioned Malcolm Campbell to shape a replica of the 1971 Bonzer replica he made in 2012. 
The first ’71 Bonzer had the iconic 3 fin setup, but did not have the classic Campbell Bros double concave Bonzer bottom. This board does have the concaves. 

It’s 5’4″. The stubbie outline is more popular now in 2013 than ever. 

The original ’71 had a different deck airbrush, which I kinda forgot about when I filled out the order card, ha ha.  

My favorite surfboard logo. 

Here is Daniel Jones having a bit of fun on the first ’71 replica in Hawaii.

Campbell Brothers Bonzer shortboards are the best kept secret in performance surfing. Shhh, don’t tell anyone. We don’t want the queue to get too long.

Surf the Bonzer Space Time Continuum

5’7″ x 21 1/4″ x 2 1/2″

Shaped by Malcolm Campbell

Original artwork by Peter St Pierre at Moonlight Glassing.

The Roundnose Mini Light Vehicle Bonzer brings the past, present and future.

Malcolm sez,

The Mini BLV3 utilizes the original Bonzer 3 fin system and the Bonzer Light Vehicle bottom design. This model is a blend of the old and the new, and exist within the timeless zone of the Bonzer Space Time Continuum.

The shape is a combination of one of our early 70′s Australia influenced nose templates, and the thumb tail that we use on the recent Mini Merk Model.

If you are looking to ride something that is extra short, is fast and rides equally well front side or backside; this might be your ticket. The average size for these bulbous babies is 5’4″ to 5’8″, but can handle a few inches in either direction. The overall dimensions are approximately 17 1/4″ in the nose, 21 1/4″ wide, and 16 1/4″ in the tail. Thickness obviously varies with individual preference.

Keep in mind that it’s profile incorporates a medium beak nose and medium to medium trim rails. This model does not, we repeat ‘not’ have the profile of a Hull type board. It is a short board that will paddle well and not catch rails and tip over easily. Short, fast, fun and surprisingly versatile is how it has been described so far.

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.

I had Randy the Ding Guy do a clean up and patch job. You may see me riding it this week.
