A conversation between Paul Strauch Jr. and Steve Pezman. Paul, a successful competitive surfer in the late fifties and early sixties, talks with Steve about his life. They cover everything from his youth around the legendary beach boys at Waikiki to his current life as a part of the Hawaiian Surf Club at San Onofre. Through the conversation Paul talks about Tom Blake making surfboards in his family’s yard, George Downing teaching him about big wave surfing, his experience with advancements in surfboard building, and finally about his move to the mainland and his desire to spread Aloha and Hawaiian culture.
