On our shop opening night, in the middle of all the chaos, Eric “Bird” Huffman and his family walked in with this authentic Caster surfboard and presented it to me as a good luck gift. Needless to say I was overwhelmed. Billy Caster was my Dad’s best friend when I little kid and his influence on me has stuck with me my whole life. I own the last skateboard Caster ever made, but I have never owned one of his surfboards. I am so stoked I don’t even know what to say.
Bird has been a staple at the iconic surf shop in Pacific Beach, South Coast/Windnsea. He is also a great resource when it comes to surfing history and vintage boards.
