18'6" unlimited class; EPS foam core & Carbon Fiber hull. Contoured deck for prone and knee paddling, full-length closed cell foam padding for comfort. Rudder system slightly rolled and a deep V tail for better water release. A good fit for flat-water paddling or moderate ocean paddling in 2’-5’ seas.

Feather fastback, a transition shape designed by Dewey and Nat Young in the early 70’s, a single fin pintail. The original templates were used to make this board that offers the versatility and maneuverability of a short board with the trim, glide, and paddling of a long board.
A full blown Gun built by Greg Giddings in Hawaii in the winter of 1998. Will enable you to paddle into anything. Cuts through chop, takes steep drops, and makes any section you can imagine.
This particular G-Force model is designed for large wave performance surfing. It is built to paddle extra well to get into waves early, the model is a mid-size big wave G-Force gun. Also, the board is designed with a T-Ban stringer to give it extra strength, total stringer thickness of 1/2 inch. There is extra thickness at the chest area to help paddle over choppy surf conditions helping the surfer bulldoze his way into the surf. The surfboard is glassed with extra cloth to give it a medium weight factor, but careful not to add too much weight. Lastly the board has the classic G-Force triangle logo at center with the Giddings shapes and designs logo centered at the tip. It's finished off with a lime green airbrush color job including top and bottom.
A retro nose rider built by Bruce Jones. A single fin pintail with a tear drop concave. Easy turning and a great nose rider with resin tint and pin lines, a great all around board.
Steve purchased this board form the original owner. A very clean deck, there are a few dings on the rails that need attention. Once this work is done and the bottom is buffed out, it will be nice to wax and ride it, after all that’s what these boards were made for.
ODY built this board for Steve about four years ago. A strong glass job, twin wood keel fins makes for a great ride. Pretty much a daily rider.
Quad, fish, contemporary rocker, low entry, slope rail, slight concave deck, tapered stringer, beak nose, double into single barrel concave. Shaped by Rich Pavel. Probably one of the fastest boards Steve has ridden. Glassed by Moonlight.
Shaped by Rich Pavel a five finned Bonzer Parabolic contour and curves, owing its roots to the round board movement. Great rider, glassed by Moonlight.
A classic down rail, full-bodied, continuous curves, flat bottom, beaked nose, round tail and low rocker make it a great paddler and wave catcher. Signature mid-70’s style. Blue and yellow pattern was done and glassed by Moonlight.
A displacement hull shaped by Rick. He has been building boards since 1965, and was building transitional boards in Ocean City, Md in the late sixties. This board was shaped and glassed by Rick and is a flyer in the small East Coast surf.
Shaped by Eric Strouve. Original template from a Greg Knoll/Jose Angel Wiamai Gun with modern rails and chambered balsa.
Pulled nose, narrow hips, speed shape by T. Maus. Great for waves with some juice.
Tom and brother, Jim, traveled the East Coast in 1970 shaping and glassing boards out of Grog's Surf Palace, Point Pleasant, NJ. Ordered directly from Tom in 1970. Hard downrail, beaked nose, diamond tail.
Yearwood's version of a 6' 9" fish given to him by Skip Frye. Double concave with twin hand-foiled Geppy's.
Found in the garbage. On oxygen even as we speak. Some dumb ass left it out with the trash ... many thanks!
I know nothing about his board. Purchased on eBay. Had it hot coated and had fins installed. Would love to hear from anyone who has info on this board. it's a great looking, early 80's board.
Bought in 1961 at original Ron Jon's in Ship Bottom, NJ by a good friend. Original pop-out. It's good to have great friends.
