Remembering The King Of The Surf Guitar


Being around the Outer Cape since the early 1960's I've seen a lot of the Surf culture beginning with my brother surfing the 60's waves on his long board...

These days many of my friends make up the Outer Cape surf culture and i'm always photographing their escapades...

Surf music has been around since those good old days... The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, The Ventures & More....

One who stands tall in the genre is the late, great Dick Dale.... Raised in Massachusetts he was dubbed 'The King Of The Surf Guitar' and his 1962 Hit Record 'Miserlou' put him on the map and on the Ed Sullivan Show too...

Lynn & I were lucky to catch Dick at one of his favorite seaside haunts - The Wellfleet Beachcomber.....

Rock On, Surf On Dick Dale....

Here's a pic I snapped of Dick Dale in Wellfleet
