Used to be an interesting thread on here about it. Disappeared into the search function abyss I suppose.

Curren made the incredibly difficult look relatively easy at Hinakos.

Hey Beery, I can only try...

Not much in the way of Dims...Shaped by Tom Petersen. The actual one was on display at one point in "Surf-Dive'n-Ski"...not alot different to the stock ones I felt up. Six channels stopping like a second tail outline just before the swallow was an interesting concept...keep the tail looser than a six channel by rights...

Scant I know, but...

Try sfsurf.com's contact email. The shaper grabbed a template from the original.

 

It may be difficult to get him to respond...

The fireball fish was shaped by Dennis Jarvis (SPYDER SURFBOARDS) HERMOSA BEACH. SEND HIM AN EMAIL AND ASK HIM. ALWAYS ASK FOR PERMISSON FIRST IF THE SHAPER IS ALIVE. DENNIS IS SUPER NICE SO I'M SURE HE WILL HELP YOU OUT! DENNIS IS AN AMAZING SHAPER.

Redundant comment removed. Why can't we delete our own posts?

Don't let the bastards grind you down.

Beerfan the original "Fireball" or "Fireballs" by Tommy Peterson as they were customely called had a few variations to them ,namely deck designs and rocker as well as where the step is placed according to the board shape.Tommy had 2 different outlines that he did as well and these corresponded with his placement of the step..I've shaped hundreds of these boards over the years and am very familiar with the designs.The particular board TC rode in that clip was actually a friend of mine's board which TC borrowed and he liked it so much and was given the board.At the time he had 3 in his quiver,but if memory serves me correct that was either a 5'6" or the 5'8".
