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.

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!
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)
ED: Good Times :)
