In 1964 I started shaping at Ron Surfboards. I started making what everyone else was doing at the time, Early Traditional 9ft to 10ft Mals with multi-stringers. By the time I moved to Bennett’s in 1967 board length had been reduced from 9ft to around 8ft. This I consider as the start of the short board revolution.
