The Shelter model is a contemporary Bonzer 5 shortboard. It’s name was inspired by the 2001 film, Shelter by Chris Malloy and Moonshine Conspiracy. Al Merrick provided a 6’2″ and a 6’4″ for the film. The boards were ridden by Taylor Knox, Donovan Frankenreiter, and a cast of visiting surfers. The Shelter is primarily a squash tail, and can be custom ordered with a swallow, round pin, or thumb tail. It is a versatile board that works well in all conditions. Utilizing the Bonzer 5 system, which Al has developed and refined over the last 34 years, the Shelter provides quick easy rail to rail transition, and unparalleled drive out of turns. It also maintains speed exceptionally well through cutbacks, and has been known to have an uncanny ability to navigate through the barrel.
