Silky, smooth Hawaiian stylist of Waikiki in the 1950's...
California hotdogger and noseriding master of the 1960's...
Progressive, psychadelic guru of the 1970's shortboard transition...
Still stylin'...longboard, shortboard, fish, single fin, twin or tri...

It didn't matter then, and it doesn't matter now...it's all surfing and it's all fun.

I remember him having a small shop in Seal Beach in the early 1970's, replete with beads and incense, might hace been chicks too....a real hippie dippie hang out, more of a bodega than a surf shop...
