    bonzers can be anything you want them to be...hpsb, egg, longboard, fishy-type, mid-length, etc..."bonzer" is the fin set up combined w/ the bottom contours. personally, i love them! pretty much every board currently in my quiver is based around the bonzer concept. brian wynn is a great bonzer shaper, learned directly from the inventors, malcolm & duncan campbell, while he was in california. i find them to be faster, better barrel boards, & just overall more suited to my style of surfing. in steep, fast breaking waves, i find that i'm able to project around sections better on a bonzer than on a thruster. bonzers also can get higher & tighter in the pocket w/out sliding than a thruster. i have a few thrusters, but they all feature the deep bonzer-like bottom contour. the only board that's not really bonzer centric is my log.

    ps-props to the guy who bumped this thread back to the land of the living! i enjoy a good quiver discussion/oogle-fest! i'm waiting on a couple boards, then i'll post up a complete quiver shot...likely sometime in the spring!

    I'm bigger and older than average:

    6'2 twin glassed on wood keel true retro fish for smaller/weaker days
    6'4 battail quad "groveler" for punchy surf under head high
    6'6 PSB round tail thruster/quad convertible for chest to head high and up - go to shortie for good waves
    7'0 East Coast "gun" rounded pin thruster for the biggest days of the year
    9'3 classic single fin log for waist high and under

    All my own builds.

    9.6 webber performer - perfect noserider
    7.6 g&s egg - fun all around board and perfect for teaching the kids to surf
    6.10 ci single fin - green resin tint, have ridden this in ankle to overhead
    6.8 dusty rhodes love - monster tail thickness, old nj board, huge skeg and easy to carve or cheat up to the nose
    6.6 cambell bros egg - great all around board, fun in summer if you dont want to longboard
    6.3 webber afterburner - step up for fall
    6.0 firewire dominator - go to short board for waist to head

    i'm currently into bonzers so i think a 6.0 bonzer or something alternative like a sweet potato is in the not to distant future....
