Program Notes:


He will begin with a talk emphasizing Dana Cove’s role in the Killer Dana era, and Dana Point’s impact on surfing in general.

Both a legendary and a visionary surfer, Dick grew up here with such notables as Hobie Alter. Metz has donated his extensive surfboard collection — now on dramatic display at the foundation’s San Clemente museum.

Public invited to this meeting free. Onsite snacks promised.
