I keep turning up additional bits and pieces from the First National Surfing Championship held in Long Beach, California, in November and December, 1938.
This week I found this wonderful glamour photo, apparently part of the publicity barrage for the event, along with a clip from the Los Angeles Times (unfortunately, no date recorded).
The event was sponsored by the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Long Beach Surf Club.
At some point I’ll have to go back and fit the pieces together. Right now, I’ve scanned and posted them as they’ve turned up, and so they are scattered in several places. Another job for a rainy day.
