5'8" Campbell Brothers Alpha Omega
5'8" x 19 7/8" x 2 9/16"
The original three fin bonzer was developed by the Campbell Brothers (Malcolm and Duncan Campbell) in December of 1970, the design was way ahead of its time and the Campbell Brothers had to wait for the rest of the surfing population to catch up to their progressive new boards. Fast forward to when the Alpha Omega was developed about seven years later in 1977 during the height of the twin fin revolution. The outline of the Alpha Omega was largely inspired by Mark Richards (MR) who was arguably the heaviest hitter in the twin fin world at the time. The Campbell Brothers took this MR inspired outline and bonzerized it by applying an exaggerated version of their Bonzer Light Vehicle concave to the bottom contour with the goal of making an even more performance oriented MR style twin. The design speaks for itself as it is still highly relevant decades later in the contemporary surf scene today. Needless to say, the Campbell Brothers didn't need to make more twin fin designs after making a performance oriented improvement on the MR style twin, thus this is their one and only twin fin model.
