Best remembered for his small-wave performances, especially at Malibu, Weber also rode well in the bigger Hawaiian surf. He further stood out by using candy-apple red surfboards and matching trunks, and by peroxiding his already-blond hair to an incandescent platinum white. Weber was featured in nearly every surf movie of the late '50s and early '60s.  #History #Surfer #remembered

Moriarity generally used a longboard when he wasn't riding Maverick's, and earned a reputation as one of the sport's most friendly and least-affected pros. He competed in the Quiksilver Men Who Ride Mountains contests at Maverick's in 1999 and 2000. He also appeared in more than a dozen surf videos, including Mental Surfing (1993), Gravity Sucks (1994), Super Slide (1999), and Whipped! (2002). He coauthored The Ultimate Guide to Surfing in 2001.  #TBT #Surfer #Quicksilver

While Jan and Dean weren't in the same creative league as the Beach Boys, their best work was just as sunny and tuneful as the Beach Boys' early hits; aside from being the first surf song to reach #1 nationally, "Surf City" is the perfect Kennedy-era beach anthem. The opening verse describes the singer's board-carrying 1934 Ford woody, while the second verse gives a brief outline of the promised land. #TBT #SurfCity #SurfSong
