Aloha, Im Wendell Abbey and am 73 years old. I now live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii for 19 years and I learned how to body surf and surfing and canoe paddling at Waikiki Beach in the 50s. I surfed with guys like Rabbit Kekai,Jama Kekai, Duke Kahanamoko, and paddled with Waikiki Outrigger Canoe Club, and Healani Outrigger Canoe Club. Then I moved to Southern California at Hermosa Bch. I surfed up and down the coast over there and worked for many surfboard companies such as Greg Knoll, Dewey Weber, Bing Copeland, Happ Jacobs, Lymann Surfboards, and paddled canoe at Marina Del Rea Beach, with Bunny Kahanamoku and Steven Kekuewa. Then I joined another canoe club that was started from one of my good friend and became president of the club of the California Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Club. We raced in the Marina Del Rey beach and other beaches in California. Then back in the sixties, the Canoe All Stars came to California to race from Catalina to Newport, so I joined them. Rabbit Kekai was the kapton of this club and we won the race by under the 3 minute record. Now Rabbit Kekai lives back home and he is around 80 years old. I would love to do this again, but Im to old now, so hope to see lots of movies of surfing and canoe paddleing. Aloha, Bradda Wendell Abbey

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.
