This revolution, “The Bonzer Experience”, is about evolution: evolving one’s thoughts, experiences, and consciousness. It’s about dynamic changes that produce quantum shifts in understanding and performance.

J.G. Bennett, describing Gurdjieff’s concept of evolution, states, “Evolution is the production of high-level energy from a lower level source. This requires an apparatus of a different kind; for the “upgrading” of energy is improbable and cannot occur at all unless some high-level energy is present. Life is an evolutionary process that goes against the direction of probability. The work by which Mankind is transformed is evolutionary.”

This quote sums up in a nutshell, more than 48 years of some pretty intense work. In 1970 the 3 fin Bonzer represented a quantum leap in possibilities, and in late 1982 the 5 fin Bonzer presented another tremendous shift in design and performance potential.

Maybe it was pure naiveté or a misguided sense of mission, but whatever it was, ever since the first wave we rode on a Bonzer we have felt an obligation to continue refining the design in order to keep possibilities open. We have wanted to give something back to surfing, which has so greatly enriched our lives.

Against all probability, the Bonzer stands here today as a symbol of the open-ended nature of evolutionary potential and performance capabilities.

Past, Present and Future … come together in every Campbell Brothers three and five fin Bonzer, creating a dimension of timeless performance and enjoyment. The past is expressed through 48 years of shaping experience and focused contemplation of surfboard design. The present is represented by absolute state of the art shaping, top quality glassing, as well as our interaction with many of the world’s top surfers. The future manifests in the Bonzer’s opened ended performance capabilities, still yet to be fully realized. Simply put, the Bonzer is the most futuristic surfboard design on the planet.
