    oxnard. but i'm not sure i'd call malcolm "small time". maybe in comparison to a brand like ci or lost, i guess.

    Well I mean if every board in your quiver isn't local, I think a beating or a stern talking to would suffice over setting someone on fire.

    What is the allure of a bonzer? I mean they look really cool, but what do they add to the experience?

    they're faster than a thruster or quad (IMO), negate the need for the ugly "double pump bottom turn", hold higher & tighter in the pocket & barrel, & favor the type of surfing i enjoy most, namely high speed, full rail power surfing. i'm not foolish enough to think i actually surf like that, but the design encourages that. some people (mostly those who've never ridden one) will say that bonzers ride like a "super charged single fin", but that's pretty much bogus.

    Well that's the best reason. I'm lucky to have had great experiences with a shaper in town.

    "We are a verb" cool philosophy. "We aren't who we think we are, we are what we do" Thanks for sharing, good stuff.

    more like just a super charged surfboard. i think you can take almost any shape and make it a bonzer and it just super charges it.
