O’Neill: We Know Where It’s At

Greetings, Shredderz! Few things go together better than surfing and psychedelic art, and here’s a classic late 60s O’Neill ad bringing that combo that we all know and love. O’Neill was founded in 1952 (which kind of blew me away, to be honest), and the text in the ad refers to the fact…

Some San Diego Sticks

Greetings, Shredderz! We’ve got a few sleds with San Diego roots that have been posted online recently, and I thought I’d feature them here. Up first we have a 6’10” Encinitas Surfboards twin fin, apparently shaped in 1980. It’s still up for sale online somewhere, and no, it’s not on Craigslist. Happy hunting….

Greetings, Shredderz! As summer comes to close (for us Northern Hemisphere residents, anyway), here are some hits from IG over the past 30 days or so. First, we gotta start with the classics.

The (Not So) New Hobie Noserider

Greetings, Shredderz! I’ll be honest with you guys: I am feeling very under the weather at the moment, but sadly the content salt mines never close. It’s another Thursday night here in California, which means that I gotta post another vintage surf ad, regardless of the wretched state of my sinuses. Here’s a…

There is a killer Dru Harrison and Barry Kanaiaupuni Pintail Gun currently listed for sale on Craigslist in Orange County. I’ve only seen one other example of a Rick Dru Harrison & Barry Kanaiaupuni Pintail…
