Greetings, Shredderz! Welcome to the latest installment of the Weekend Grab Bag. Per Grab Bag rules, all the boards featured here are listed for sale as of publishing time. We’ve got a pretty eclectic group of single fins, ranging from some classic 70s shapes to some truly weird stuff from Tom Morey’s uninhibited imagination. Keep scrolling for more.
Morey-Pope Sopwith Camel (Craigslist Hawaii)
Shred Sledz is and will always be a pro-Tom Morey blog. Here’s a cool 7’3″ Morey-Pope Sopwith Camel, likely shaped sometime around 1968 / 1969. The board is by no means in perfect shape but I personally enjoy every opportunity I get to check out Morey-Pope’s output from the Transition Era.
70s Sunline Single Fin (Craigslist Los Angeles)
Like one of the boards I posted last week, I believe there’s a great chance this could be a Phil Becker shape. I’m not sure on the full story behind the Sunline Surfboards label, but of the ones I have seen, there have been a handful shaped by Becker. Dave Hollander, who was later Phil’s co-founder at Becker Surf, did the beautiful pin lines. See below for a Rick board with very similar pin lines. Finally, I posted this Sunline single fin earlier on Instagram; check out the IG post for some more shots of the huge fin box.
7’0″ Wilderness Edge Board 2+1 (Craigslist Ventura)
Last but not least we’ve got a cool Wilderness 2+1 edge board, inspired by George Greenough. I’m guessing this was shaped by Bob Duncan. According to the listing the board is from the early 80s. This strikes me as a little early, given the thruster was invented in early 1981, but it’s a cool board nonetheless. Love the bright green high density foam stringer and I’m always down with an oversized Clark Foam laminate.
