Gone Too Soon

 34 year old Laguna Woods surfer, Frank Quinard, left this world too soon in April of last year. His family felt his surfboards should go to a good home and donated 3 longboards and 1 shortboard to Surfing Heritage last week. We'll have them on display in our showroom for the next week or so along with a poem and photo of Frank with his nephew. Frank loved to surf San Onofre, Newport Beach and other Orange County spots and will be missed.
Friend and neighbor of the Quinards, Frank Van Wickle brought the boards by on Friday, with help from George Stremple. Here Frank is pictured with one of the longboards. You can view more photos on our facebook page:

I am extremely saddened to hear the passing of Frank Quinard. Strange how I ended up here on this blog. Someone posted the board I shaped for Frank on Facebook it's the flamed modern lb with the black and grey flames on the floor left, (nice to know it's in good hands). I Google search as I had lost contact with Frank the past few years.

It was an honor to have shaped a custom board for him. Frank was a man of minimal words but had an intensity about him that could not be denied. I will miss you Frank.See you on the other side.

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.
