“Wow, boards sold out in 11 minutes. A HUGE thanks to everyone!”, wrote the 1993 world champion on Instagram.

Yesterday, Michael “Eppo” Eppelstun sale online of a limited edition boards shaped in collaboration with NMD head shaper Mez, based of his Rheopaipo model from 1994, was a success. 

Eppo kept the number two board to himself, so the other 8 were sold online during a IG live with the legend and his friend Jake Stone. Number one will be auctioning and donating the proceeds to charity. 

The Australian also explained 20% of the profits of each board ($200) will go directly to local bodyboard clubs to help financially club members who may struggle to travel to events.

Due to the success of the initiative, Mez and Eppo are considering launching a new retro model, perhaps from Eppo’s time at Manta, replicating the iconic “Gun” and “Pipeline” models. 

Stay tuned vintage lovers.
