In 2008 Chris Christenson shaped me this magic 9’0” mini-glider with Bonzer siderunners.
It was made out a damaged blank and was originally conceived as a twin fin, but Marlin Bacon had just handed me a set of his bamboo glass-on fins and it felt right.
This board was a departure for me since I never rode boards with Skip Frye style glider rails, and I mostly rode boards under 6’0”.
It was extremely rare for me to get a board without an airbrush or resin tint. As you can see it’s got a pretty good suntan as it’s had lots of outdoor time over the past decade.
This is a smooth rider, full control, has a whipping cutback if you move your foot back. I love it on strong offshore days.
Last year this board went back into strong rotation as I was recovering from a shoulder injury. Luckily cruising and trimming is trending as a surf style so my friends don’t heckle me too much for riding it.
Maybe if you are lucky Chris will shape you one too!
Fun! Now all online t-shirt orders will include an old surf mag out of the garage (whether you want one or not). Condition and content may vary. Will it have the poster? No. Will all the best photos be cut out? Possibly. Can you request certain back issues? Sure, I can try. Can you opt out of this offer? No. *sorry all out of stickers.
