    Can anyone tell me anything about my surfboard?

    Hey guys I just bought this surfboard last night from a guy on Craigslist for $150. 7'9\" tall, 23\" wide. Other than a little damage around the tail it appears to be in good shape. <br /><br />Can anyone tell me anything about the shaper, John Hunt from Hawaii? It looks like he still has a shop out there but I can't find any info on his work. This thing looks pretty old so I'm curious to learn a little more about it. Thanks!

    don't forget that when funshapes were introduced there was a huge variation on design. many were simply scaled down longboards.

    There is no volume in that tail

    Yea... that's what I thought, too. Big center fin in the thruster position. Weird.

    I used to own a fun shape with a similar 2+1 fin setup. Thought this was fairly common.
