Early Campbell Brothers Bonzer

Look at this super rad early Bonzer design, which you can find on Craigslist here. The board is located in Ventura, CA, the ancestral home of the Bonzer design and the Malcom brothers who are responsible for shepherding it into modern surf consciousness.

The poster claims this board is from the early 90s, which sounds about right. Stoked-n-Board lists this logo as having only been used from 1968 to 1970, which, if I had to hazard a guess, isn’t quite correct.

The dims on the board are a healthy 5′7″ x 21 3/4″ x 2 1/2″. I still can’t get over how wide that tail is! Apparently it has a concave deck as well, which is an interesting touch. The poster claims this is an early Bumblee outline, which has since been refined into something a lot more recognizable.

The board is going for $275 and you can find here.
