Last November SHACC co-founder and all around legendary human Dick Metz sat down for a chat on The Longboardarian Podcast to talk story and share the immense history he’s been fortunate enough to be part of throughout his 90-plus years on this blue planet. So, if you’re interested in the way it was, spend an hour listening to the man that lived it all.
Thanks to the graciousness of our dear friends Steve and Debbee Pezman, Surfer Magazine founder John Severson’s desk will have a permanent home at SHACC.
Sunsets in Capo Beach will never be the same as Wayne Penn Schafer has slipped from this world. The dearest of friends to so many in his 91 years with us, he passed peacefully in his sleep at his home in front of Poche Reef on June 2, 2020.
Afri Amu is the first surfer from Afghanistan to ever pull on a jersey in a major international surfing competition. In May of 2017, he represented his homeland at the ISA World Surfing Championship. Spending his formative years as a political refugee living in Germany, after finishing school, he hit the road on a hitch-hiking trip around Europe. A chance encounter in France gave him his first taste of surfing.
