Item Description

10' Board; Laker Yellow
Golden Eagle Model

Skip Frye is a surfer, surfboard designer and shaper, and environmental activist. Skip is known for his gliding, fluid style as well as some of the most in-demand surfboards in the world. He is perhaps, best recognized by his iconic logo, a set of wings commonly referred to as "Frye Wings." He was in a rough patch in the 70s and couldn't even afford to buy laminates so he started signing his wings in pencil. This is referred to as his "ghetto days", when he shaped surfboards behind Select Surf Shop in Pacific Beach.

Skip still surfs daily and shapes in the San Diego area. His attention to detail and careful hand-shaping practices have created high demand and long wait-lists. His boards have slowly become collector's pieces often passed down through generations.
