Rich Harbour started Harbour Surfboards in his parent’s Seal Beach house in 1962 before moving into a nearby storefront, the only surf shop in town at the time and then to its current resting place on Main street.  43 years later, Harbour Surfboards is the world’s oldest continually-operated surfboard shaping and retail operation. Steve Pezman chronicles the Harbour crew of the 1960’s from the formation of the Long Beach Surf Club, to a Baja discovery, and their first attendance of the point-like surf at Honolua Bay.
