9'4" X 23" X 3"

This is a fantastic surfboard design that was passed over by history. Designs in the 1960s like now were changing fast. We went from basic pig shapes in 1961 to three stringer, pointed nosed Trestles Special's and Phil Edwards models in '64 and '65 then by '66 we were into full wide-nosed nose riders like the Performer and Con Ugly. The quantum leap came in '67 when Australian shaper, Bob Mc Tavish blew minds with his short V-bottom boards. We couldn't believe the photos of the turns coming out of Australia. By 1968 everyone was making 8' to 9' V-bottom boards. I was shaping for Gordie Surfboards then and being young, I shaped nearly all the Gordie V-bottom Assassin models while Gordie preferred to shape the longer boards. The V-bottom era was over by 1969 and by 1970, I was shaping 5'10" Infinity twin fins.
