Another cool find in the OC. Storage War’s.  Another  Man’s Fall is another Man’s Gain.  What can I say, but another great example of a 1970’s Mini-Hawaiian Sunset Gun. Made and surfed in Hawaii is this Donald Bennett.  I do not have much history on DRB, but all you viewers, please partake and advise.  – Buggs   (o) 7.5.

    Hello, I have a similar board from Donald Bennett. I understand this one is from the 70ties.? (sunset mini gun single glass on fin?) I’m also looking for more information, I understand Donald R Bennett , is a shaper from the East Coast and that in 1976 he moved to the North Shore were he was working and shaping for labels like “Lighting Bolt” and “Brewer’.
