Three of my hero's. Brock and Bruce Reynolds and Ricobama. Just keep in mind the title of this blog when viewing the other pics. Maybe I should have titled it SURFING STAR TRACKS.

My Great niece, Dakota Brown, Santa Monica Beach about 2007. Same beach where I first stood up on a wave in 1959.
This guy brought in a CC RIDER from the 1960's while I was visiting Dick.
Dick Metz hired me off the beach at the Outrigger Canoe Club in the late 60's to be manager of his Hobie Store in Honolulu. He's been a friend and mentor ever since. He founded the Surfing Heritage Foundation maybe 10 years ago in San Clemente, California. SHF is the mother load including one of DUKE'S boards from the 1930's. It's value estimated at a quarter million dollars. The board in this pic was given to him by the guys that used to steal beer from Dick (he owned a liquor store in Hunington Beach in the late 50's) while he was out surfing the H.B. Pier.

Well, we were running out of firewood and it was cold on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. This is our good friend Howard Kelly's previous work shop .. STEAMBOAT LANDING MARINA about 2007.
Looking kinda serious. Guess we all regretted having to cut up a fine guitar just because we were getting a little chilly. Inez, Howdy and Patty.
