You have to ask yourself what Bob was thinking when he scrawled that note to his friend Lloyd on the cover of this SURFER Magazine more than 40 years ago...couldn't he have used a napkin or matchbook instead of defacing a piece of surfing history?
This John Severson cover shot features Ricky Grigg charging Waimea Bay. This issue includes "The Australian Surf," "Toes on the Nose," and Rick Griffin's Murphy and the Surfing Contest, Part II.
Also includes a "South Swell" pictorial featuring Laguna Beach, Ala Moana, and Huntington Beach. Plus "Photos from the Readers," and "Big Surf Preview: Be Prepared" by John Severson. Lots of period ads by Bing, Jacobs, O'Neill's Surf Shop, Velzy, Gordie, Ole, Con, Gordon & Smith, Yater, Joe Quigg, and more!
