1984 Al Merrick Vintage Quad Surfboard+ Circa 2008 Al Merrick Retro Quad Surfboard

In the past ten years or so, it is clear that veteran surfboard shapers have been revisting their old designs from the 60, 70’s and 80’s.  Today, you can visit any surfshop and pick-up a retro board that reflects a blend of old and new outlines and materials. Check out the similarities and differences of an 80’s Al Merrick Quad (video) and a 2008 Al Merrick Retro Quad (pics).
