So, the back story on this board is that I bought it sometime around 2001, while I was living in San Diego, working at Channin. I bought it for $40 in a thrift shop in El Cajon, with the fin broken off, and pretty beat. I never thought I was scoring some lost gem worth a billion dollars. I just liked the look of it, and tripped on the asymmetric tail.
I took it to work (Channin) and asked the older crew there, and they didn't know the shaper, and suggested sticking a fin box in it, and having some fun, which I duly did. It's fun, FAST, but a little unforgiving. I took it to the Bahamas when I left the US in 2002-3, and it sat in my parents attic/shed/yard for years until I decided to bring it back with me to Santa Cruz. It is now cooling off in my shaping room, and going to get the attention is needs. Which, is a full resto at this point.
I was sharing it with a few of the older guys here, and they all agree it is a legit 70s shape, from a known shaper, judging by the foil, rocker and rails. But, still no one knows who the shaper is....
Will the real GA please stand up!?
