Big Wave Gun

The initial wave riding sequence of "Die Another Day" was filmed at  Peahi (Jaws) off the North coast of Maui, in December 2001. The footage shows three surfers exchanging surf lines, during a large swell. Laird Hamilton, Dave Kalama and Darrick Doerner were the surfers called in to play the actors' in this opening surf scene.
Darrick Doerner gave this prop from the film (it's made of black rubber) to Ed Clapp and Ed in turn just donated it to us. 00Cool.

As much as I'd love to wear these and get my "Fernando" on, I think they deserve to be housed in our archive and put on display when we redo our Evolution of Surfboard Design timeline. We'll be turning it into the History of Surfing timeline and we'll be including all sorts of gems from our collection, including trunks, wetsuits, leashes, skateboards, etc. This huge undertaking will be starting soon! PS, thanks Bing for thinking of me, I'd totally rock these if I didn't feel they needed to be put to better use than just updating my wardrobe!


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.
