Born in December 1920, Mike Howes started surfing in 1937. This is a wonderful account of his life in and out of the water on the New Jersey Shore. Mike was an avid waterman throughout his life, from surfing his father’s Blake-style surfboards to teaching Red Cross lifesaving, parasailing, aquaplaning, and, oh, those beach parties.
