The largest gathering of San Diego’s surfing pioneers will occur on Sunday, August 5th at a book release party for Surfing in San Diego, to be held at Trophy’s Sports Grill in La Jolla.

Sponsored by the California Surf Museum, the event, which runs from 1-5pm, will attract the mentors of such local surfing legends as Skip Frye, Larry Gordon, Linda Benson , LJ Richards , Mike Doyle and others. These iron men and women rode wood boards, without wetsuits or leashes, and the San Diego surf was their playground. The book, by area natives John Elwell and Jane Schmauss, will be available for purchase for $19.99.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 760-721-6876.
