Purchased from Surfshop, Belmont, NSW.
Board previously owned by shop proprietor.
A 1998 Thruster finned adaptation of the company's Lazor Zap - a no-nose, wide tailed single fin board designed by Geoff McCoy and Cheyne Horan, 1979-1984.
Initially treated with scepticism by the surf press, this design was in response the increasing popularity of Mini-mal templates that retained traditional Malibu board lines.
With an emphasis on ease of paddling and stablity when riding, the design is now used by other manufacturers.
