Dick Brewer Teams with Surftech to Launch Limited Edition Wood Gun

Print Friendly and PDF

Legendary surfboard shaper Dick Brewer has teamed with Surftech Board Manufacturing Company in offering a limited number of his Iconic 70’s era balsawood guns.  These veneered wood replicas of the original started as a hand shaped 9’6” “Master” by Dick in his shaping bay located on Oahu, Hawaii.  From there the master was sent to Surftech’s factory in Thailand for meticulous duplication and manufacturing.  This board is still considered today the premier shape used in big surf during the early short board revolution that took place in the late 60’s and 70’s.

“Dick and his innovative designs had a huge impact on surfing and surf culture during that era and for decades to follow.  His influence during the birth of the short board revolution is undeniable and the idea of actually owning one of these Masterpieces is still considered a milestone for any serious surfer”, says John Vance, CEO at Surftech.

“Over the years, I have been asked to re-produce this board for collectors around the world.  This design has always been one of my favorites and I felt that by teaming with Surftech I could offer this design to more people on a global basis better than on my own”, says Dick Brewer.

“There will only be 100 of these boards available worldwide in 2017.  Each board will come with a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by Dick and will be available on a strictly first-come first-serve basis. These Brewers have a special place in the history of surfing and are only available through selected specialty surf shops, surf museums and the Surftech website”, says Ryan Guay, VP Sales at Surftech. 

About The Surftech “Limited Edition Collection” Series

Each year, Surftech will pay homage to one iconic shaper and the notable design contribution that made them famous. These boards will be very limited in their availability and represent the pinnacle of design within the era in which they were first introduced.  Each of these boards represents a milestone in surfing history and will be painstakingly re-produced down to the last detail.  Each board will be certified by the original shaper and only be available through specialty surf shops and museums as well as at www.surftech.com.
