When I was a kid in the 70’s my dad would bring home surf mags with pictures of guys just ripping on these short “stinger” shapes. Low rocker, a huge wing moved up 1/3 of the way to the nose, and a big single fin. From those moments frozen in time I have always wanted one of those boards. But it wasn’t until this spring when I was on the phone with Ron at the Becker Surfboards warehouse that he mentioned to me that Phil Becker had hand shaped a few real classic stingers. He sent me a few digital photos of the boards Phil was turning out and I couldn’t help my self. The green one you see here was soon on its way to the shop. I would like to keep this one forever.
