In the summer of 1962
primarily as the result of the "Gidget" phenomenon, the California beach surf culture stormed the East Coast. This was the dawn of East Coast Surfing, particularly in the Charleston, S.C. area.
The first surfboard
at the local beaches was a 9'6" Malibu "popout" shared by five teenagers. Board wax was purchased in rock-hard paraffin blocks from the local grocery store. There were no surf shops or waves crowded with other surfers. These kids were stoked and it was contagious! The surfing boom had exploded.
Our main goals are simple
To surf more, work less, have fun and pass this great activity on to our children and their children. So join up, let’s go and Surf’s up!
