Craig Lockwood’s in-depth look into the surfing life of Jim “Burrhead” Drever and early California surfing through the lens of Burrhead’s personal recollections and photographs in his scrapbook. The article covers a pivotal yet near-forgotten slice of surfing’s developmental and cultural history in the early 1950’s, highlighting the effect of “cultural diffusion” on surfboard design and wave riding resulting from visits by California Surfers to Hawaii during this time.
