The story of Bunker Spreckels’ brief, wild life is truly stranger than fiction. Heir to a sugar fortune and stepson to Clark Gable, Spreckels was at different points a teenage North Shore surf-rat at the front of surfboard design experimentation, Los Angeles scenester and power player, and one-man globe-trotting performance artist with his own alter ego.
Dedicated equally to guns, martial arts, women, and drugs, wave riding nevertheless remained at the center of his lifestyle among the pomp and excess until his early death at 27.
