Featured Collector | T K Brimer of the Froghouse Surf Shop

One of the most famous surf shops in the world is located at the north end of Newport Beach, CA right on Pacific Coast Highway. The Frog House is a surf shop in the purest sense of the word and has been operating at this location since 1963.

Legends Expression Session 1.21.2012

My travels to Hawaii found me in a position to be able to hang and talk story with Legendary Hawaiian Watermen of the 70’s and early 80’s: Michael Ho, Buttons, Dennis Pang, Bobby Owens, Ken Bradshaw,Reno Abeliera and others. These names listed may be lesser known in comparison with names of today like Jamie O’Brien, John John Florence, Mason Ho, Bruce Irons, Mark Healy, but these Legends are just a few of the many Golden Breed that were king during the 70’s and 80’s. Today, their personal vintage riders sell in excess of thousands of dollars at Randy Rarick’s Hawaiian Vintage Auction held every two years. The value of their boards alone says a lot about who these guys were and are – waterman who rode mountains of water in the Hawaiian State.
