  • Strange reply...

    I think he meant there are already several bonzer threads open over there, plus numerous ones in the archive, not to mention that money4coffeemicks posts over there and he has extensive bonzer experience.  ::)

    exactly.

    think you're getting a little too crazy here.  go to the archived site and search and read.  also go to surfermag design and swaylocks and do the same.  you'll get more at surfermag design than anywhere else.  don't think micks is on this site yet, which (correct me if i'm wrong dub) means no one here has a bonzer.  commercial side of nysurf?  i haven't seen it.  that cafepress thing is beat and prob hasn't turned a dime in profit.  bet those 'brooklyn surfers' are friends of nysc.  no pop ups.  no bothers.  just bookmark the forum and go to it.  you're making much ado about nothing imo.

  • oh and uptown i don't really know yet.  haven't heard back from malcolm (apparently he doesn't reply till he gets your deposit, and even then is slow).  i sent him pics of a bumble bee, pod, and 'shelter' i liked.  my bionic knee still isn't functioning well at all so i've become a heavy front foot surfer, so i'm thinking something with wp forward, high volume, etc, but not all out--i already have a single fin like that--some sort of a go between shape.  i'd tell you the color scheme i'm thinking but it's top secret--can't have anyone swipe my idea  :)

  • I think I am crazy trying to make a point in a chatroom.  I have read and researched bonzers - I was looking less for actual advice and more to engage some experienced design discussion here, not over there - but no worries man - I lost the desire to engage but I do appreciate the response.  adios

  • cool man.  i've heard it takes a while.  i bought an old board from micks a couple years ago and when i met him he was telling me about ordering (i think) his first bonzer. he told me that he ovenighted a dozen NY bagels to malcom and it sped up the process :)

      i'd tell you the color scheme i'm thinking but it's top secret--can't have anyone swipe my idea  :)


    haha nice!

  • ya, the bagel part is true (my dad fed-ex'd them to moonlight).........not sure whether it sped up the process or not. feel like we got our bonzers in like 3 months, but this was before Shelter came out and the renewed interest in bonzers.

    def worth the wait

    btw, surfnli have u heard from malcolm yet?
