August 20 -21events

There is so much happening this weekend!!  Not sure which one to attend!

Sat the 20th offers to contests, the ESA in Narragansett and The 2nd Longboard contest to benefit Potters League will be at Surfer’s Rock on 2nd Beach in Newport.  This is also the Cape Cod Bay Challenge SUP race from Plymouth to Welfleet!

Sunday starting at 7 is the Waves for the Braves Camp organization by the VA. I missed the July event so do plan to attend.

My personal goal is to catch a few Hull waves on my SUP and test out the 400 mm lens to capture a better picture of Boston Light!

Anyone around??

How many memories were created here?? Personally I grew up here, my father spent time in China and loved to cook Chinese.  He was friends with the owner, so I had Chinese at least twice a week!

Strong International Attendance Sure To Heat Things Up!

A Century of Surboards and Collectibles on Offer

HONOLULU - (May, 2011) -- Pre-registration has opened for the Hawaiian Islands Vintage Surf Auction, presented by Quiksilver Waterman Collection, and bidders from around the world are lining up for what promises to be an epic assortment of Hawaiian surf collectibles. The hammer will drop on Saturday, July 23, at the Blaisdell Center in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii.  

Held every other year since it began in 2001, the Hawaiian Islands Vintage Surf Auction has seen more than $2.6 Million worth of surf collectibles change hands. Auction curator Randy Rarick expects bidding to hit a fever pitch this year with the world's top collectors already on board. Bidding will be limited to only 250 attending bidders, however online bids will be accepted in conjunction with the live webcast of the event.

"We have collectors coming from Japan, France, Brazil, Portugal, the U.S., and a huge contingent from Australia this year," said Rarick. "Australians are serious about their surfing and know their history. In fact, they played a big part in revolutionary surfboard designs and that will be highlighted in this year's collection. With their dollar so strong right now, and their natural affinity for all things Hawaii, they're going to be in it to win it."

Rarick has begun unfurling his "Peek of the Week" teasers and promises to roll out generations of highly coveted auction items over the course of the coming months.

"This auction will cover the gamut of surfboards," says Rarick. "From early plank and laminated wood boards, to Tom Blake paddleboards, Hawaiian big wave 'elephant guns', and early day pro rider boards including those of Shaun Tomson (below) and Larry Bertlemann.

Nantasket 68

As the email strings are too cumbersome, I have decided to create this blog.  As a Hull native who graduated in 68 from Thayer and part of the surfing scene, that has enjoyed a reunion created by Mark Richardson and some of us may attend the upcoming reunion in July, this blog is for all who wish to participate.  Keep it clean and let's share are photos and memories.

I am on the board of the Atlantic Surfig Museum and some of these photos may be used in a documentary.  That being said!  Welcome !

Enclosed are my pictures from the last reunion!  oh where did the time go??
