Greg Webber Lightning Bolt Single Fin

Greetings, Shredderz! Today we’ll be taking a look at a board shaped by Greg Webber. Some of you may remember Webber from his infamous work with Shane Herring in the Nineties, which resulted in a set of blades with almost comical rocker, dubbed banana boards by skeptics.
