Lost and Found

Just found this great old surf story on the web.

What began as an ordinary day spent at a flea market in Los Angeles transformed into a life-changing event for surf aficionado Doug Walker but also marked an important moment in surf culture. In 2007, the commercial film editor stumbled upon previously lost 30,000 negative film strips which documented the world of surfing of the 1970s. Frozen in time, the spirit of the sport was beautifully captured by talented counterculture photographers in raw and powerful images. The 2011 Lost and Found movie featured the handful of photographers and well-known surfers appearing in the archive, but the journey was only beginning. After traveling the world, researching the stories further and adding more images to the collection, Walker created a large format coffee-table book that pays homage to the photographers and surfers, and introduces the artworks to the world.

This is the one that started it for me. Two to three books later, downloading tons of pictures and a slow accumulation of wood and hardware, I hope to start building mine soon. I'm still waiting for the Cherry I inherited from Sandy to dry .Mine will have a cherry top and oak legs.For now.
