I picked up this cosmic creature at the Longboard Collectors Club in June @ the Mahe Restaurant, Seal Beach. For sure, this one is a backyard shaped board while on the best hallucinogens. The board comes complete with galactical artwork, step, and channels.

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).
