Early '60s Whitey Harrison board

Long time Sano Hawaiian Surf Club member, Ed Escandon donated his second Whitey Harrison board. This one dates from the 1960s and has been refinished. The fin has the hole in it so Whitey could run a chain through the hole and padlock the boards together to a coconut tree. (We've seen some boards where the owner glassed a penny in the hole). Whitey was one of the first to experiment with early foam, even before Dave Sweet and Hobie Alter and came from the school of, "Why buy it when you can build it yourself." He even tried to fill his teeth using Bondo but when decided that wasn't such a good idea since it gets extremely hot when the chemicals go off. A true early California waterman and pioneer. Thanks for the boards Ed!

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.
