Excellent - thanks for clearing this mystery up!

You know why they made so many Surf Champs?
Because it's the best darn em out there, that's why

Surfer is on my wishlist. I'd pick up a Surf Champ if it were close and reasonable, but a Surfer would make me sell something. Plus my wife wouldn't mind me buying another pin if it were a Surfer.

Finally confirmation of what was always a suspected clerical/typo error.

My Surf Champ. Original paint and legs along with a perfect Backglass. Backglass 10, Playfield 8.5, Cabinet 9.

Black legs? Mine had black legs when I got it but they definitely weren't original (wrong length), so I replaced with new chrome ones from PBR. Either way, yours looks awesome! I had to do a full restore on my cabinet and PF and get a BGResto BG...

Actually they are the original chrome legs, camera just did not flash on them right. It is the only machine I have ever bought that did not get a set of new legs from PBR as these are in super condition. Machine was routed for 3 years when new, then sold to the owner I bought it from.

I agree the artwork on the glass of Surfer is better, the 28" Surf Champ back box has a few extra waves under the girl vs the 26" Surfer, I found this out when I repainted both heads.

good to known, I have a surf champ and also have all the mechs and backglass of a surfer and was tempted to make a second backbox for fun one day

are they any other differences with the backboxes ?

Wonder what a custom wedgehead would look like for the surfer?

No, just the heights, 2 inches difference.
4" height difference between 2 and 4 player backboxes in the other games with 100K lights

Ummm no, wedgehead is for single player only........backglass size is 22" high and 19 7/8" wide

Oh, you got a Maresa.....not Gottlieb?
......anyway, that backglass is still too big for a wedgehead.
