Transition Era Effluent

During the transition era, there was a window of about a year when board builders, especially in California, were shaping shortboards out of leftover longboard blanks.

This led to several unintended consequences.

One: Early shortboards often had very flat, evenly distributed rocker...

Two: There were a lot of left-over end portions from the oversized blanks that were too big to throw away in good conscience.

At least one manufacturer -- The Greek -- started gluing these chunks of foam together and making belly boards and small surfboards out of them!
