Gene Cooper shaped this 12'0" Hornet for Rod Osborne in Ojai, CA. Mr. Osborne donated this board to Blinky at the Ventura Surf Shop, in order to raffle the board as a fundraiser for the "Best Day Foundation." (See http://www.bestdayfoundation.org.) I bought a raffle ticket and won the board!
The board is in pristine shape. I was told--and it does not appear--that this board has ever been in the water. There are only a few, very superficial scratches on the glass--no dings/fractures, delamination, discoloration, soft spots, etc. This board is a classic example of Mr. Cooper's acid splash/pigmented-resin Hornet--yet unique in terms of its 12-foot length.
If you are interested in purchasing this board, please contact Dan Klemann at firstname.lastname@example.org. The board is in Ventura, CA.
