RISING SONS SURF CLUBHello,

This is Allen Rizzi of the Rising Sons Surf Club from the 1960s. I was glad to see the article about Stanley's Steak House. It brought back a lot of memories. Frankly, I thought time had forgotten the place.

Back in my day, we simply referred to it as Stanley's and we carved many a good wave there. It was one of those secondary spots where we seemed to have always found good waves and very few in the water. We almost always stopped there when there were too many boards in the water elsewhere. I always found the spot to be relaxing both in and out of the water. We spent more than a bit of time in the parking lot there but we were never hassled by Stanley's or the oil company. It was a great place with a great history.

One summer day in 1965, I was surfing a nice swell there with friends. I was on a beautiful six foot foot wave when the guy behind me went off the back of his board and accidentally kicked his ten foot log into my left kidney. I still have a lot of pain there but I smile every time I pee and think back to that afternoon almost 50 years ago.

Like so much of the landscape around Ventura and Santa Barbara, the decades have changed almost everything. I remember when they tore down the old Stanley's, we all went up to Rincon and held a little wake of sorts; beers and tears were abundant all around. That part of the coast always seemed empty after that.

I have written a short book about surfing in the 1960s: Fifty Years Ago- A Surfing Trilogy. You can find it here for a glimpse into the past: Amazon.com: Fifty Years Ago - A Surfing Trilogy eBook: Allen E. Rizzi: Books Amazon.com:

Thanks again for the great article. Tight curls!

Surfcrazy; I made my own boards for awhile in the mid to late 60's. I bought resin, cloth, catalyst as well as an occasional Clark blank from a surf shop on Oxnard St. in Tarzana, located just east of Reseda Blvd....does anyone remember the name of the shop and the older gentleman who owned it? Really a friendly guy that always enjoyed talking surfing.

ED: Loyde Ghist? Check Archives.

that's it! thanks! takes me back to a great time of my youth...really good site and have enjoyed reminiscing my surfing days... Trestles and Cotton's Point... my encounters with Secret Service and Marines, fun days at Rincon, Huntington Cliffs and pier, Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, surfing Encinitas, Solana Beach, Wind'nSea, etc...all good memories!

Chris

Mike; thanks for the memories...Lloyd was one nice guy and very helpful. It was hard to go in there because we would chat so long and I would regale him with my recent surf stories...he always enjoyed hearing them and got a kick out of my adventures dodging the Secret Service. I did get caught and was constantly getting escorted out and told not to come back....yeh, right! (damn Nixon! and his western White House)

Chris Taylor

ED: Good Times :)

 

Ghetto Surfboards Sean PiperGood Morning, I was wondering if you could include my logo on your website. Attached is a .jpg file; however, I have .eps files that I could send if necessary. Thank you.

Bernie Miller 1966Something rarer than those hens teeth. The belly board I have under my arm, I bought in the fall of 1964, from a shop in the San Fernando valley called Val Surf. (I assume that "Val" was short for "Valley"). I do not recall the location of their shop. I rode it, until I had the Gunther Glass board made and sold it to a friend.

Gunther GlassThe attached photos are of a bellyboard that Gunter Glass (Dan Tarampi) made for me, sometime in late fall of 1966. He shaped it to dimensions that I gave him. I rode it last, in the early 1980's, on Maui. If you know where Dan is, forward the pictures. He'll remember it.
