Ocean Magic stinger

Here's another great board from the Gul collection, an Ocean Magic stinger from around 1977 probably shaped by Pete mooney McCallum. This board is based on the Ben Aipa stingers from Hawaii which made a big impression on the OM boys in the late 70s. Nigel says his favourite shaper of all time is Aipa. This board has the classic early logo which was gone by '79, with text very much like the old Creamed Honey logo. A fast looking board, definitely not for slop.
