Surfing Palos Verdes Cove

Pictured here are 3 riders at the Palos Verdes Cove back in 1940. The surfer in the middle is Fenton Scholes, 1 of only 2 surviving original PV Surf Club Members (the other is Rich Meine). Photo: Joel T. Smith Collection


The most recent member to pass away was legendary surf photographer, LeRoy Grannis, whose tribute and memorial paddle out are talking place on Saturday, June 25, 2011 on the south side of the Hermosa Pier at 11:00 AM. Bo Bridges Studios on Hermosa Avenue will feature a gallery showing of Grannis photos and there will be a slide show of Granny's work at Sangria Restaurant on Pier Plaza. The Hermosa Beach Surf Museum will have a large collection of LeRoy's photos and memorabilia. Surfing Heritage's main facility in San Clemente will be closed that day in order for us to attend the ceremony honoring this giant chronicler of surfing culture. We hope you can make it.

This is a cool photo. It is always great to see pictures these known surfers back then. They contributed a lot to this activity that we enjoy today.

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.
