Yes the shaper is my Father Ed Edgar…..he is also one of the body surfers
on the small boards….Eagle tattoo on arm. He was in the Navy……hence
Thanks for posting this, it is excellent.
Is that Dale Velzy shaping the plank? Who else was making boards in the

Grew up there in 50′s, only a few houses and lots of sand dunes. Very few
surfers. Kerwins, Tom Rawlings, other watermen. My first board (1962) was

fake! All the local kids wanted to stand up on something, anything, and
ride the waves!
thank you for sharing!!!! awesome document….

Let me add my thanks too. Great seeing how much fun the beach and surfing

believe the changes in surfboards and surfing just ten years later when I
started in the late-50s.
