From a 60's Wardy price list, an eloquent description of a surfing board.

"A surfboard is less innocent than it looks" - classic!

Fred Wardy was one of a kind in the annuals of board builders. Did you know he became a well known and respected artist?

A little odd that he'd have a shop in Pasadena, so far from a beach. Not that there aren't plenty of shops that far away, but I just think it's unusual during that period.

Thanks for that bit of info that he is a rather well known Artist. Did Google search. He has some amazing work. Surfers Journal should do a Bio on Wardy.

Any chance you can scan a really clean copy of that and send? Really like to try and make a larger size and frame?

This film had me stop what it was that I was doing just now for an hour and ten minutes. There is rarely something this good that comes along that captures my attention like this. It is 7 years old and I have never seen or heard of this before. Thank you so much for posting. This has made my week!
A must see for ALL surfers for the trailblazers in this film should not be missed. Some folks on here may disagree, but that is fine.

So stoked right now.
