Surfing Roadshow .... Steiny's '84 Hurley

Today on Surfing Roadshow we're frothing on Kurt Steinmetz's '84 Hurley Team slide, and here to talk about it is the shaper Bob Hurley……

Ghetto Juice: Yo, Bob, do you remember this board you shaped back in the day?
Bob Hurley: Yeah, Skippy, I think that is a team board….either Pugsley, Thom Mcelroy or Ron Quigley. Looks like a 5.8 x 2 3/8 double bump swallow…..single concave with roll in the nose….. Boards were evolving quickly at the time…I was working hard to keep pace with how fast surfing was progressing. This one was influenced heavily by Greg Pautsch. His McCoy boards were really advanced and we were just transitioning to thrusters from Twins. The idea of a no nose and surfing in the pocket was being pioneered by Cheyne Horan, Geoff McCoy and Greg. It was airbrushed by John Vartanian and Glassed by Greg Martz at Waterman's Guild. Super light and really flexible… great little boards for barrels…..especially 54th street!
