Harrison Roach’s Modern Bonzer

A melting pot of past and present

As Harrison Roach puts it, the bonzer was the original tri-fin surfboard that was overshadowed by Simon Anderson’s iconic thruster design. In this clip, Roach pays homage to the bonzer by blending the board’s original ’70s design with some modern concepts—including rails and a five-fin setup. The final product is a board that Roach feels comfortable riding when in an array of conditions.
