My dear Mr.Puttzle. There is only one surf film, Surfwise, the story of the #1 surf familyh in the world. They put that yocha, Gidget, on the HB Walk of Fame omitting the fabulous Dorian and
family. That just ain't fair..

Attention Winekamper. Abel Gomes made Geordie look like a kindergarten student.

Abel Gomes, Alan’s father, was “an accomplished Honolulu craftsman,” a 1997 obituary on Alan described, “was renown for building sought after wooden planks for Alan and his friends, as well as canoes and paddles.” Wally Froiseth made sure I knew, after I had written an article on Tom Blake‘s development of the hollow board, that Abel had actually been the one who built the first Blake hollow boards. Blake would provide the specifications and Abel put it together. “Tom Blake didn’t actually make those hollow boards down there,” Wally told me. “This guy Abel Gomes made the boards. He was a woodworker. Tom wasn’t that much of a woodworker. But, he had the ideas, you know. He knew what he wanted.”
