|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.|

The Roundnose Mini Light Vehicle Bonzer brings the past, present and future.
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.
My friend Marty brought in this killer 1970’s Campbell Brothers Bonzer with the Light Vehicle bottom.
I love how futuristic these boards are, especially for 1977. It’s like discovering a 35 year jet pack at a garage sale and wondering why we don’t all have one now.
