ROOTS




As the youngest in a group of World War II-era surfers that included John Kelly, Wally Froiseth, and Fran Heath, George Downing was not only in on many of the earliest forays into big wave riding in the 20th century, but also contributed design discoveries that broke the barrier to 20-foot surf and beyond.

 George downing was my hero and still is. I had a poster of him surfing huge castle surf (the biggest surfable wave in waikiki) on my wall at the foot of my bed...in my  room at age 12.

Castles is located about a third of a mile off the Waikiki shoreline.  That's Diamond Head crater on the right.
