    Wondering if anyone has any info about these boards? Has anyone owned/ridden one? Year? Average price based on 7/10 condition? Opinions on overall construction and strength/flex? How do they ride? Fin setup? Etc. Friend sent me a pic but not much more. Board is 9'6" Any help would be appreciated.

    I think that is a Munoz lam.

    Def Munoz doing the El Spontaneo or whatever it was named back then. Can't see much of the board. IF MM did it, it was probably made under the Hobie manufacturing roof.

    Yeah, you're right:
    The "Quasimodo" is an all-time signature move originated by master-surfer Mickey Muniz back in the 1950's (but is still Rad current day). ... The surfer is riding a wave and extends his arms out parallel to the surfboard and ducks his head.

    My friend sent me that limited pic of the MM. I followed up with him and he told me It was signed and being sold along with a signed Takayama at an estate sale in Southern NJ. My friend told me both looked to be from the 80's or 90's and both were in mint condition. Both boards sold for a total of $1200. Sounds like someone had a good Sunday. Awesome.
