"The Clicka"

As no phenonemal success had been achieved in competition with the previous boat it was felt that a new craft may bring the required results and add another new piece of life saving equipment to the club's gear.
About this time (1966) aluminium surf boats had made their appearance in surf life saving circles and a small committee was set up to look into the desirability of this type of craft.
When the club meeting was held to formalise the ordering of a boat, Dick Cavanagh said "We don't want a tin can - let us buy a regulation plywood craft from Clymer's Boat Builders".
This oratory carried the day and the plywood tuck stern boat was procured and launched in the 1967-68 season.
The official launching ceremony was performed by Mrs. Pat Asmussen.
Again, like its namesake this craft gave invaluable service until it was finally given to Coalcliff Surf Life Saving Club.".

Dick Brewer has claimed, retrospectively, that his first shortboard was built in the Spring (May?) of 1967:
 " I'd made a 9-foot 10-inch gun for David Nuuhiwa in the spring of '67, and David broke the nose off, so I redrew it at 7 feet 8 inches with a 17- inch nose on it - a tanker nose - and Randy Rarick was a patcher and he reglassed it.
I took that board out and rode it at Chun's, at the left called Piddlies - phenomenal roller coasters with that heavy nose and the gun tail.
That board became the proto-type for the Bing Lotus.
So, the mini-gun was happening in the spring of '67.' "
Brewer's recollections were confirmed in the article by Randy Rarick.
- Marcus: Surfboard (2007) page 159, quoting  Drew Kampion in The Surfer's Journal, unspecified.

From context, the implication is that in mid-1967 Brewer was committed to this significant reduction in length: "For some reason, all of this innovation led to Brewer being relieved of his command at Bing.
Gary Chapman had purchased a reject blank and carried it over to Bing's factory where Brewer shaped it into an 8-foot 6-inch mini-gun.
"Bing fired me the next day," Brewer told Kampion."
- Marcus: Surfboard (2007) page 160.

It would appear that Brewer's dismissal was in fact at least twelve months later.
Initially employed in May 1967, Bing Surfboards were still promoting Dick Brewer's Pipeliner model in July 1968.
- Bing Surfboards Advertisement, Surfer Magazine July 1968.
Reproduced in Holmes: Bing Surfboards (2008) page 97.

Tom at the Classic Bing Surfboards web site post several images of a Bing Pipeliner and notes:

Chuck Linnen's original California Pipeliner Gun.
Dick Brewer shaped three Pipeliner Guns when he visited the Hermosa shop in the summer of 1967, for team riders David Nuuhiwa and Chuck Linnen and Grant Reynolds (Bing's glasser).
Unlike the other Pipeliner Guns, which were made in Hawaii by Brewer in 1966-67, these three were made for riding big surf in California.
This one is 10'7"!

The images include a "a photo right out of Bings order book" that indicates that Linnen's board ("#7986") was ordered and/or shaped on  "8-3-67", that is 3rd August 1967.
- Classic Bing Surfboards

Even accounting for the board being "made for riding big surf in California", the extreme length hardly illustrates Brewer's recollection, above, that "the mini-gun was happening in the spring of '67".

Gerry Lopez supports that story with his own recollection: "I think it was in late
'67," he told Drew Kampion.
"Brewer had just moved over to Maui from the North Shore and was shaping in Lahaina.
Reno Abellira and I each took a blank over  there to get our boards made by him.
Reno got his shaped first, but before he could shape mine, Nat and Greenough and McTavish and Ted Spencer and a couple of other Aussies showed up with those wide-tailed, vee-bottom boards.
They wanted to go ride em at Honolua Bay, but there wasn't any surf there.
John P Thurston had a surf shop at the Cannery in Lahaina where all the boards were glassed, and they came there, and we met em, and Brewer and McTavish kind of bullshitted for a long time.
So the next day we go back to do my board - I think wanted like a 9 foot 8-inch, which was considered a shorter board then - and Bewer just takes the saw and cuts a foot of the blank, and it's 8 feet 6 inches, and he tells me, 'That's how big a board you're getting. "
Holmes: Bing Surfboards (2008) page 164, quoting  Drew Kampion in The Surfer's Journal, unspecified.

"McTavish was working for Keyo Surfboards just down the road from my office in Brookvale and I'd call in every now and then to sa,y hello and check on his latest shaping job.

One day after not having been to Keyo's for a few weeks, I walked through the showroom and there were ten new boards, all in the 8-foot range and all with deep vee bottoms and concave noses.
The 4 inch-deep vee held right off the tail, giving them a different look, like nothing I'd seen before.
Bob explained that he'd been making them shorter and shorter over the past few weeks and insisting the little "Plastic Machines" were really exciting to ride.

McTavish is a charismatic character when you get him going.
As I drank in what he was saying, I felt the life coming back, I wanted to shape one of these little machines and go surfing. Bob explained how the vee bottom in the tail sat the back of the board in the water, allowing it to roll up onto one side and carve an arc. My first thought was that these boards would have all the action in the rear end; they were really only turners and I wasn't sure that was such a good thing because it struck me that nose-riding had been thrown completely out the window. I thought the concave noses were a feeble attempt to get the boards to nose-ride but they just wouldn't do it like the old boards did. For the first time in my surfing career lightness had become a factor; everyone was building their boards out of stringerless blanks to keep the weight down.

I asked Denny Keyo if I could use Bob's shaping bay and, for the first time in six months, I shaped a new board. It was 8 feet long by 23 inches wide and like McTavish's had a 12-inch pod across the tail with a 4-inch vee.
The stringerless blank was really hard to hold while shaping and I had to use a brick to keep it in one place.
The thickness of those Plastic Machines also made them appear strange, as they held the thickness of the centre right through to the tail.
And I soon found that glassing them was a nightmare.
The idea was to get the board as light as possible, so a thin skin had to be put on the bottom to hold the curve, then a couple, of layers on the deck to give it some strength and rigidity.
I took the new board out in a 3-footer inside Narrabeen "Alley" to test it and thought I'd never get used to the feel, it was so weird.
After an hour of practise, and a few long swims to the beach, I began to get the feel of the vee and found how interesting the pocket-riding type of surfing could be."

1968 Butterfly fin by Scott Dillon:
" Happiest surfboarder anywhere is Dr. Bob Spence. 
The 'Doc' has a board which he swears is the complete answer. 'Nat' has ridden it ...'Kenno' has ridden it, many others have too, and everyone agrees there is something really different and interesting about this board. 
Scott Dillon designed and built it and this is a pretty radical unit. 
Top plan shape is modified 'stubby,' though not quite so wide in the tail, bottom rear is convex, vee rails are straight though swept up at front end, but, the real punch line is the fins ... yes, I said fins (plural). 
Both skegs are joined at the base and then project out-ward and upward, gull wing style. 
The whole unit is very gracefully constructed and, according to 'Doc,' gives unbelievable stability and ease of manoeuvrability. ..the unit is just over 8 feet long."

Nat took 3 boards to the Islands, all under 9' - 8'8'' Rolled bottom, 8'7'' Speed board with Racing (Snow) Ski rail contour, and a 8'8'' radical Vee bottom.
US surfers kept Keyo (Surfboards) busy and returned with boards as short as 7'6''.
Duke Contest won by Jock Sutherland, Bob McTavish forced to ride his short board after leaving his gun in Honolulu.
Some of these reports are possibly incorrect/enhanced.

Following the 1968 World Contest in Puerto Rico riding his Weber Ski design, Nat Young, like many shapers, began to experiment with the low rail:

"Naturally Ted, Wayne and I had been looking very carefully at all the other competitors' boards.
David Nuuhiwa, Joey Cabell and Reno Abellira had really different rails on their boards, one I'd never seen before: hard, low in profile, and running the entire length of the board from nose to tail.
After all these years and after questioning many surfers, I've still no real understanding of who first discovered that important ingredient -the origins of the low rail are still a mystery."
-Young: Nat's Nat (1998) page 187.
