Ron Drummond Canoe Surfing


This photo was donated by the Bascom family and was given to Willard Bascom by Ron Drummond. On the back of the photo is a hand-written note which reads:

"The inner peace that comes with the quiet contemplation of a beach on a still calm morning, or the feeling of exhilaration that comes from riding a great wave in a small boat, is more reward than most will ever know." 
Willard Bascom
This we have in common!
Sincerely,
Ron Drummond

Can you identify any of these surfers?

This photo taken by Don James shows 6 surfers in a quonset hut (we're guessing Makaha) but the exact date, location and surfer's identity is unknown. Can you help us?

The other Yater (no, not Lauren)

The original Bikini Factory opened on Chapala Street in downtown Santa Barbara in 1965, and has been a part of the Santa Barbara scene for 45 years (they're now located in Summerland). This pair was donated by Sally Yater, Renny's wife and creator of the Bikini Factory. We thought it would be appropriate to throw some props her way, since Renny's going to be getting all the attention this weekend up at Sacred Craft.

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.
