Christian Beamish 
Christian Beamish came to the Surfing Heritage Foundation with his boat Cormorant in tow, and read from his new book The Voyage of the Cormorant (Patagonia Books), talking about how small boat voyaging came about as a natural extension of his surfing life.

The story of building Cormorant, his 18-foot Shetland Isle beach boat, learning to sail her, and then departing from San Diego for a solo surf trip down the Pacific coast of Baja, The Voyage of the Cormorant is also a surfing adventure, with special attention to surfboard design. Heavily influenced by the Simmons keel fin and Pat Curren Waimea gun in the SHF collection, Christian will discuss his combining design elements of both boards, and the link between deepwater sailing and big wave riding.

We have books available for purchase ($27 includes tax).

I have always fancied a surfboard as a type of conversational piece among my furniture. I guess it's high time to visit Hawaii and experience the fun of surfing, first hand.

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.
