Magic Sam

Magic Sam is the name of the board on which Nat Young won the 1966 World Championships at San Diego. The board was a revolutionary 9'4", and is said to have "ushered in the shortboard revolution".

We've recently acquired our own Magic Sam. He's not quite 9'4" long, but by our estimation he took exactly 9 months and 4 days to create. Which I think is pretty magic.
