Went to the celebration of Hansen’s 50th year at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside California with Sam Cody. Don Hansen founded the Hansen Surfboard shop in 1961, It became San Diego’s largest surf shop with more than 1600 square feet of retail space. This was a great event with good food, drink and music and a great opportunity to meet old surf contacts from the years past. Steve Grill was here from Kauai and had many great stories to tell about my mom who was an ocean rebel and know by most of the local surfers. Was was able to have a long conversation with Larry Gordon of Gordon & Smith Surfboards. Six special historic Hansen shaped boards were auctioned off bringing some money to the surf museum. Sam Cody did the pin line art work on the boards and is well respect for his attention to detail and high quality work. If you have the time it is worth a afternoon trip to visit this historic museum which is only a few blocks away from the Oceanside Museum or Art. The museum is located at 312 Pier View Way, Oceanside CA. 92054 • 760-721-6876 • surfmuseum.org
