This 5'7" Shovel Nose Shark
is for Mr.Devo.
He won a ruffling at Socal Japanese Surfing Contest.
He always rips at lowers,
so I hope this will be good advertisement for Sun Dolphin Surfboards.
He is lucky and I'm lucky too.
And I'm looking forward next year Socal Japanese Surfing Contest.
Who's gonna win a custom surfboard next year!
Thank you so much Mr.Masaki Kobayashi!!!

Both 9 feet California guns are shaped by Mr.Terry Martin.
This brand new board is custom ordered by a surfer lives in North California.
He wants a California gun like the other one(original) with more volume and little more longboard taste.
This is the original one.
This board is made by 60 years old blank
which is old 12 feet longboard from beginning of foam surfboards era.
Terry Martin skin off and put new stringer
because original stringer was eaten by bugs.
And he shaped this california gun
out of 60 years old longboard.
