2008 Pipe Masters trophy surfboard

Artist Phil Roberts created a trophy surfboard for the 2008 Pipe Masters. The surfboard features a charcoal sketch portrait of Gerry Lopez drawn (free-handed) onto the foam of Gerry’s shaped Pipeline Gun blank! The surfboard had an estimated value of $10k before the contest and $20k after Kelly Slater won the event.
