Kenny Mann’s Sunset Bonzer5

A gift from Forest Howell, early 90’s Sunset Surfboard by Brian Fredrickson shaped for surfboard sander, Kenny Mann.
Rare 1980’s Moonlight Glassing logo with 70’s Sunset logo.

Brian would often shape boards in one of the Moonlight Glassing shaping rooms and the entire factory crew rode his boards.
Brian made great versions of the Campbell Brothers 5 fin Bonzer design. This one has all 5 glass-on fins.
The infamous “Moon Frog” logo appears on thousands of surfboards.
In 1990 boards like this looked like spaceships compared to everything else.
Kenny loved the inside section at Swami’s in Encinitas and almost surfed there exclusively.

 

As a founding member of the original 1979 Moonlight Glassing crew Kenny Mann sanded thousands and thousands of surfboards in his career. Tragically, Kenny died night surfing Swami’s in 2015.
Kenny started out sanding at Sunset Surfboards in Encinitas, down the block from Swami’s. Here he is in his Moonlight sanding room in 1979/80.
