herbiefletcher. “My dad was my biggest mentor, and he was that for a lot of other kids

“My dad was my biggest mentor, and he was that for a lot of other kids too. He would take me and Christian to the skatepark when we were little and told us that skating and airs were the future. He always encouraged us to try airs and to push ourselves, and he did the same with Dino Andino and Archy and a lot of other kids. Everybody thought my dad was crazy—and he is crazy—but he was so ahead of his time that he made us ahead of our time.” — Nathan Fletcher ____________________________________________________________ (📷: Sam Olsen) #astrodeck #theoriginator #since1976 #tractionpad #wavewarriors #adrenalinesurfseries #thethrillisback #surffilm #sideslipboogie #surfhistory #arrowmaker #fletcherdna #genepoolofcool #herbiefletcher #dibifletcher #nathanfletcher #adelafletcher #lazerzappa #jetsonepic #mrbuzz #vans #vanssurf #vansoffthewall #nixon #wmsurfing #weedmaps #stretchsurfboards #wbw @nathanfletcher @adelafletcher @herbiefletcher @dibifletcher @astrodeck @wavewarriors @fletcherdna @vans @vanssurf @nixon @wmsurfing @weedmaps @stretchsurfboards @surfer_magazine

- Surfing has changed so much over the last few decades... . So grateful I've gotten to be a part of it all... . Herb, Gerry Lopez and Barry Kanaiaupuni at Sunset Beach in 1971 reminds me of how different things were when I made Herb's trunks, and he made his boards, it was a sweet family affair---> . . . . #herbiefletcher #dibifletcher #anaffairtoremember #fashion #surfer #artist #art #fletcherdna #family #lifestyle #wrecktangles #astrodeck #surfhistory #wavewarriors #gerrylopez #barrykanaiaupuni @gerrylopezsurfboards 📷thanks @jeffdivinephotographer

CHRISTIAN FLETCHER @christianfletcherlives revolutionized surfing. Rebel Wave Warrior 100%. Regarded by many as one of the Top 10 Most Important Surfers in History because he took the aerial moves that Tony Alva and Jay Adams of the Z-Boys Of Dogtown were doing and put them on to da waves. No one still can match his style and attitude when he’s out there flying high. A true legend born from a legend, his father is Herbie @herbiefletcher . Here’s the CST Godfather Tas with Christian shooting the shit while talking about Surf and Skateboarding history...and Crete. Maybe we will see him in Greece sometime. Go watch Christian on YouTube in Wave Warriors. Total respect to him and his whole ohana. His son rips: @greyson_fletcher . Brother is legendary Big Wave rider @nathanfletcher . Mom is @dibifletcher . ✊🤙 #tbt . .

Just announced! This spring SHACC's next exhibit, "Go Faster," will focus on the talents and contributions of George Greenough, Bob McTavish and Dick Brewer. From the Shortboard Revolution, to Greenough’s Spoon and the fin he foiled for “Magic Sam,” to the down-railer, and all the down to the modern-day craft the men continue to build, their collective body of work has changed the way we all ride waves today. Exhibit opens this April. 🎥: ‘The Plastic Fantastic Machine,’ 1969. . . . . . #greenough #georgegreenough #mctavish #bobmctavish #brewer #dickbrewer #gofast #builtforspeed #surfboards #surfboarddesign #balsa #surfboard #surfer #surf #surfing #surfinglife #surfculture #surfhistory #newexhibit #gerrylopez #spoon #surfingheritage #shacc

I LOVE Biarritz. Every morning walk was filled with friendly locals helping me with my French, beautiful architecture and a history story or two. In 1956 Dick Zanuck(legendary LA producer of Jaws and Driving Miss Daisy) brought his surfboard to Europe while filming the adaptation of Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises.” Screenwriter, Peter Viertel helped Zanuck smuggle in the surfboard by hiding it with filming equipment to avoid excessive French taxes. Zanuck returned to California, leaving his board with Viertel. Viertel was a less experienced surfer, didn’t wax it, and broke the board. A local fix it all repairman mended the board, aiding an American to be the first to surf the Basque and Biarritz is now known as the surfing capitol of Europe. #europe #france #southernfrance #biarritz #cotesdesbasques #atlantique #selticsea #surfingcapitolofeurope #surfcityeurope #surfeurope #surfbiarritz #shopthesurfshopsinbiarritz #surfingiscrazyhere #surfhistory #surfant #planchedesurf #learninghistorywhilevacationing
