 From CI -

The Black Beauty has become one our CI's most popular step up boards. A replica of Tom Curren’s famous 1985 Bell’s Beach, Occy beating, and world title winning board. Vee bottom makes this a great board for good waves. Power, speed and flow are timeless cornerstones of good style. The trend to shorter and wider boards has come at the expense of drive, and with top surfers around the globe revisiting power surfing, the timeless design of Curren’s 1985 Black Beauty has not gone unnoticed. As evident by Connor Coffin’s recent performance at Jeffrey’s Bay this board is the gold standard for those seeking to surf with pure power and style.
