100 Year Old Book on Surfing

The exhibition, The Surf Riders of Hawaii, features the Gurrey family's personal edition of the book. It is being loaned by the Gurrey family for the exhibition, which will also include reproductions of each page in the book and other materials relating to the early publication. The exhibition will be on view at Surfing Heritage everyday of the week except Sundays, from March 2 to May 4, 2013.
Shortly after A.R. Gurrey closed Gurrey's Art & Photo Supplies in 1923, his home suffered a fire and flood that is believed to have destroyed his original negatives. This book is one of the few records of Gurrey's photographic work and of early surfing in Hawaii. 

Gurrey's The Surf Riders of Hawaii will be included in the forthcoming Surfing Heritage Vintage Surf Auction California Gold presented by the Quiksilver Waterman Collection. For more information: CLICK HERE

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.
