Gordie Tandem Vee Bottom


Steve Boehne (Infinity Surfboards ) began surfing in 1959. In the beginning he built boards in his garage and then in 1968 he went to work shaping for Gordie Surfboards. The Shortboard evolution was taking place during this period and Gordie's answer to the call was his vee bottom, Assassin model. Being a tandem rider, Steve created this one-of-a-kind board to compete on. The shortboard influence is evident in the board's dimensions, 10' x 28" x 3.5" (most tandem boards were and are in the 12' and over size range) and coincidentally, it is the best example of a deep vee bottom tailed board currently in our collection. We're working with Steve on getting some video footage up of him riding the board with his wife and tandem partner, Barrie.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
