A Timely Reminder

An oil tanker collision off of Huntington Beach caused a large spill of oil during the Fourth Annual West Coast Surfboard Championships held in Huntington Beach (imagine if this happened today during the US Open, then think about what the people in the Gulf have ben dealing with for months now). Tandem competitors, Bob Moore and Shelly Amarine (4th place), Hobie Alter and Laurie Hoover (3rd place), Pete Peterson and Patti Carey (who's missing, but finished in 1st place) were covered with crude oil from surfing in the spill. September 23, 1962. Photo: LeRoy Grannis.

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.
