Whitey, Doc Ball, & Grannis Re-creation Boards

The Three Amigos

Working alongside these 3 pioneers of surfing, Greg Noll (himself a pioneer as well) recreated their first surfboards. 

"Lorrin 'Whitey' Harrison's surfboard was the most advanced," says Greg. "Fairly narrow in the stern with a vee-bottom tail for riding more critical waves." Leroy Grannis' board was made of solid merch redwood (from the outer bark ring). Doc Ball's board was carved from a solid slab of redwood with a copper Hawaiian shield mounted on the deck. (excerpted from Greg Noll, the Art of the Surfboard )

These 3 surfboards are now on display in our hallway, here at Surfing Heritage, and were donated by Founding and Sustaining Partners, Nick & Terri Bacica. They were recently delivered to us by Wingnut, on one of his southward journeys.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
