Every shaper is making a short, wide tail, retro model these days. You can be the only one in the lineup on one like this.
This is the real deal when it comes to “transitional” surfboards. One of the earliest entries in the shortboard revolution.
It’s a 1967 Challenger Micro with the Formula Vee*. Shaped by Bobby “Challenger” Thomas who passed away last September at age 69.
6′ X 21″ with a wide tail that transitions with a deep vee bottom into a pin. It has generation 1 Fins Unlimited removable fin system. There are a few dings that need repair but nothing serious and this thing was built with double 6/8 oz cloth with lapped rails and a deck patch, most dings didn’t make it through the second layer. And, there is no delamination.
You can Google up the history on the board. Here is one link I found: http://surfboardstandard.com/btc001
Might trade for a nice longboard in the 9′ – 10′ range.
Local sale or trade would be great but I will drop it at the surf shop of your choice in New Smyrna or Daytona Beach for boxing up and shipping and you can work out the freight with them. Thanks!
