Two Legends

This "Gem" came to us by way of Senator Fred Hemmings. In this picture we see the "Dark Prince" of Malibu, Miki Dora, shaking hands with "Mr. Pipeline" Butch Van Artsdalen (the gal is unknown). Apparently Miki and Butch "were not the best of friends". I think Butch's look says it all, although Miki's look is just as priceless. (Click on this photo to check out the classic photos including the headshots on the wall behind them). Circa mid-sixties, collection of Senator Fred Hemmings. More from Senator Hemmings and more about Butch in the coming weeks...

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.
