Rob and his new bonzer....the speed freak machine!!

Had a great time a few weeks back catching up with my good friend and ex Phantom employee  Rob the painter, shaping him up a Bonzer for his upcoming trip to Indo. This was a hand shape and it was awesome to have him in the bay getting feedback along the way, refining the shape to his liking....foiled rails, venturi concave channels with plenty of paddle power whilst reflecting on our surf expeditions through Sumba back in the eighties... Next off to the glassers to have Jimmy Davidson spray it up and then have Dan Wicks glass and set the quad bonzers. I hand-foiled the single fin while Dan custom made the side fins for the board. Great fun and a nice job to do, made even sweeter by making it for a mate who likes to ride these freak speed machines!!!
