When it comes to provenance you can’t do much better than finding a special board that a world champion rode to victory—and when it comes to one of those special boards you can’t do much better than the Pat Rawson-shaped gun that two-time world champion Tom Carroll used to win the 1988 Hard Rock World Cup at Sunset Beach. Rawson, considered one of the North Shore’s premier gunsmiths, foiled this 8’3 super-narrow squash tail specifically for the mighty Carroll, who put on what many longtime observers claim is still the best contest performance ever seen at Sunset Beach. Long held in the Flippy Hoffman collection, this custom-sprayed rocket looks as clean and mean as the day Tommy Gun picked it up from the glasser Jack Reeves and is offered at NO RESERVE !
