Quick Look at an "Original" Weird Stick

Take a look at this once-weird looking board. It's a first run original 5"5" X 19 1/4" shaped by the legend Mayhem in the mid 1990s. Truth is, if there was one surf company in the '90s who was ahead of its time when it came to making weird looking boards it was …Lost. Not only did they make the first (marketable) weird surfboard but they released a surf movie to go around it and got a Young Chris Ward to wave the flag. The 5’5” X 19 1/4" didn’t have a weird name like Trash Can Diver or Stub or anything hipsterish like that. The dimensions alone were weird enough at the time and that’s all they needed to sell the crap out of ‘em. You can still find boards like this today but since so many have similar dimensions you’ll have to ask for ‘em by name rather than by size.—Skip Snead
