G&S Skip Frye Baby Gun

Greetings, Shredderz! Yes, I am addicted to scouring Craigslist for surfboards. But every once in a while, the countless hours I’ve spent refreshing the same old crappy ads turns out to be useful. Case in point: this 1968 Gordon & Smith Skip Frye Baby Gun was briefly listed on Craigslist before the ad…

Christian Fletcher + Matt Archbold for Lanty

Greetings, Shredderz! Here’s a rad Lanty Surfboards ad featuring not one but two of the most radical surfers of the late 80s / early 90s: Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold. I posted another Lanty ad featuring these two, which you can find here. Originally saw this ad on Pinterest.

Greetings, Shredderz! We’ve got a special board for you today. It’s a Shawn Stussy-shaped single fin from what I believe are the early days of his brand. Even better, I believe the board was one that Shawn made for himself. Keep reading for more. Sadly, I don’t have the dimensions of the board…

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! Here’s a cool Maui and Sons ad from the 80s featuring a young Luke Egan. Note how Tom Servais is credited for the photo at the bottom — would be curious to see the original shot the artwork was based on. Not sure who did the artwork. I know Rick Rietveld…

Two Top Notch Takayama Boards

Greetings, Shredderz! Per the title, here are two random Donald Takayama boards that I recently saw listed online. The first is a 5’6″ Donald Takayama Larry Bertlemann twin fin. I’m guessing this one was shaped in the late 90s or early 2000s, as the signature on this board matches the style that I’ve…
