Hap Jacobs Exhibit Now on Display

Hap Jacobs
"Celebrating 60 Years of Shaping"  
In 1960, Jacobs opened the Jacobs Surfboards shop at 422 Pacific Coast Highway during the "golden years" of surfing, when the Beach Boys music hit the bandstand and Bud Browne, John Severson and Grant Rohloff movies were screened at local theaters. Surfer magazine was also becoming a must-have for every surfer, and Jacobs was regarded as one of surfing's finest craftsmen. He still is.
On exhibit now through January 15, 2015

Some of the opening night guests included Robert August, Tom Morey, John Van Hamersveld, Walter Hoffman, Fran Hoff (Velzy), Carl Ekstrom, Allan Seymour, Rich Chew, Skip Beale, Darryl Dickie, L.J. Richards, Tommy Witt, John Grannis, Mike O'Neil, Kenny Brown, John Wegener, legendary Australian surfing champion Nat Young and several Jacobs team riders.

Big Thanks to Lonnie Argabright, Pete Briggs, Kenny and Patti Brown, Don Craig, and Henry Ford for helping to fund the exhibit (and to Henry for all his hard work on pulling this show together); to Darryl Dickie for allowing us to use material from his book on Hap; to John Grannis, Steve Wilkings, Mike McIntire, Tom Keck, and the rest of the photographers who have photos on display; and to everyone that loaned boards and other items for the exhibit. Lastly, Thank You Hap Jacobs for being the inspiration for all of this!

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.
