Rick Surfboards

Does anyone know anything about this board???

i’m interested to know also

Rick Surfboards located in Hermosa Beach in the 70’s, started fading and dissapearing somewhere around 82’.

Phil Becker of Becker Surfboards was their main shaper up to around 1980,81,82 or so when he opened Becker Surfboards.

Those boards, ‘Rick Surfboards’ , had a great reputation until Phil Becker left.

Rick Surfboards, and memory is not serving me well here, lasted 2-3 years after Becker left.

Rick Stoner’s son, Jeff Stoner, has kept the label going. He a good shaper and is well known in the paddleboard circles, both as a shaper and paddler. If I’m not mistaken he won the Catalina Classic the year Laird Hamilton came to race. I had heard rumors he was going to open a Rick Surfboards shop in Hermosa, but maybe that’s all it was, rumors. I do know he’s building a custom home in Palos Verdes at the present moment.

Rick Stoner’s son, Jeff Stoner, has kept the label going. I’d see him around the South Bay, Torrance (Burn Out ) area. I always thought that “Stoner” was his nickname until someone clued me in, “That’'s Rick Stoner’s son.” He’s a good shaper in his own right and is well known in the paddleboard circles, both as a shaper and paddler. If I’m not mistaken he won the Catalina Classic the year Laird Hamilton came to race. I had heard rumors he was going to open a Rick Surfboards shop in Hermosa, but maybe that’s all it was, rumors.

The board in the photo does look like a late 70’s, early 80’s era Becker shape.

Surfing Heritage Foundation has a great time line of shapers, guys I know on the page say it is not exactly accurate with dates etc, but it is still pretty cool
