chapman surfboards

Postby estimated eyes » Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:56 am

someone just gave me a Chapman Surfboards 6'9" x 19" wide with no markings on it besides the logo. http://surfcrazy.com/stanleys/surflogosC/chapman.gif the logo on the board is a bit different as the surfer illustration in the link is not on this board. Hardly any rocker, thick and pointed nose with a diamond tail.

does anyone know any history of this shaper/company? From a little research, it seems its Gary Chapman, not Owl Chapman or Dale Chapman. He may have something to do with Brewer Chapman Surfboards.

thanks!
