Pat Curren Surfing Wamea

Pat Curren successfully surfing what was one of the largest waves to be ridden at the time. Wamea Bay, North Shore of Oahu, 1960. You can just see Pat being chased by the mountain of white water on the left side of the photo. What you don't see are the 2 others surfers who didn't make the drop and got gobbled up—Pat was known for sitting outside of everyone else, patiently waiting for the set waves and notoriously making more than not. He was also known for shaping big wave guns suited perfectly to accomplish this task. This gem was donated to us by John Elwell along with his photo collection.

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.
