Greg Liddle "Jaws" board

This Liddle “Jaws” “Trashcan Nose” model was shaped in 1979 by Greg Liddle for John Parker to surf in the Point Breaks of Malibu, Rincon, and The Ranch. Its shape and design was inspired by Steve Krawejski and Andy Davis, both creative forces and riders of the Southern California displacement hull movement of the 1970s-90s,  which included Greg Liddle and Paul Gross.
This board was a unique outline with asymmetrical rail lines. The right “inside” rail is shaped for forward thrust and trim while the left “outside” rail is shaped for long drawnout cutbacks. The wide nose was shaped using a metal trashcan lid as its template, thus the “Trashcan” model.
It has been ridden by John Parker, Bobby Shorr, and has the distinction of being the first and only shortboard ever ridden by the legendary Lance Carson.
As Lance said on 10/14/17, “I rode Parker’s “Jaws” model at Malibu back in the early 80s. The Greg Liddle crew stopped me at the Point as I was heading out with my longboard. They goaded me into trying that 7’5” hull… my first and only experience. I gotta say… that thing RIPPED! Hulls DO WORK. But you have to know what you’re doing.”
Donated from John Parker to Yvonne and Rusty Russell with the help of Paul Jay Diamond.

Enamel Surf Pins

We're still going through all the items that were donated to SHACC by longtime supporter, Ed Clapp. Another one of the cool items is this enamel surfing pin set. 


SHACC received a donation of 4 large bins of vintage surf trunks, etc. from SHACC supporter, Randy Hild. This beanie from the 1996 Eddie contest is just one of the really cool amazing items. 


Swaying Hula Girl Lamp

SHACC lost one of it's longest running supporters, Ed Clapp, back in January but we just received a couple more boxes containing items that were donated to SHACC in Ed's will. One of the coolest items is this hula girl lamp. We're trying to figure out just where to display this beauty, her hips actually sway! Thank you goes out to George Trosset for packing and sending us the items.


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.
