The Second Duke Contest

Another photo from the same contest as below. Jock Sutherland and Miki Dora. We originally thought these were from the first Duke contest but the photographer, Tim McCullough straightened us out. We need that every so often.
The second Duke contest, 1967. Among those pictured are Fred Hemmings, Clyde Aikau, Miki Dora, Paul Strauch, Eddie Aikau, Doug Hauet, Rick Grigg, Mike Doyle, Corky Carroll, Greg Noll, and Mike Hynson, at Val Valentine's house. Photos: Tim McCullough

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.
