The Original Gordon & Smith “Magic”

The original Magic is from the end of the summer in '68.

The scrolled coat of arms type logo decal was part of the original Magic design.  Actually the Magic evolved quite a bit and we still have the outline in our lineup today. The original design was the brainchild of G&S shaper and proficient surfer, Dennis Benadum. Skip Frye had a hand in the design as well. This was an early "Shortboard".

The first ones had thick tails. They were thinned out later as the rail design evolved too. Also rocker was added to the nose in the later editions.
