5’8” to 8’

The bonzer is a hopped up single fin.  Originally a design of the Campbell Brothers, it features a double concave through the fin area utilizing the Venturi principle that a fluid or air speeds up when compressed into a narrower channel. This creates forward propulsion and as a result the bonzer design has always been associated with down the line speed.  The modern version is a five fin (bonzer 5) with a very contemporary single to double concave bottom, modern rails and a healthy rocker. It has an old school deck line and outline, packing heaps of foam in the flat deck and area in the nose and tail. Its a super paddling board and, due to the side fins being so out on the rail and splayed out, offers loads of grip on a steep wall is a terrific barrel riding board.  
If you would like a modern feeling board that can be pushed in bigger, steeper waves but has the sweet, easy flow of the single fin, this is the one.  Makes an excellent travel board as well.
