Cheyne Horan Riding McCoy Lazor Zaps

One of the all time great Board Maker/Test Pilot relationships. Geoff McCoy and Cheyne Horan were pivotal in the development of surf craft as we know them today. Featuring what was then the radical concept of a drawn back wide point (aka the No Nose) and refined dome in the tail behind a single fin the Lazor Zap and it’s precursor shapes changed surfboard plan shapes forever. A few years later Simon Anderson stuck 3 fins on a board very much like one of Geoff’s outlines and the rest is history.

The Surf Nomad actually got our hands on the yellow white and black board Cheyne rides in this clip which a mate had inherited third hand. It was pretty much ridden into the ground at that point and we had to repair the tail and a bunch of other dings in it to make it seaworthy again for the guy that had inherited it. We don’t quite know what became of it after that but we wish we had it now.
