Inductee Bio

Quirky pre-World War II surfer and boardmaker from Laguna Beach, California; a model for the irrepressible and irresponsible Southern California surfer. Larson was born (1916) and raised in Laguna, and began surfing in the late '20s. During the depression he made surfboards, usually out of redwood and balsa, using a draw-knife, for most of the two or three dozen Laguna surfers.
