Tom Blake's Words

"A mule drawn wagon with two very long, heavy boards of the period sticking far out the back, pulls up to the point [Malibu] carrying Tom Blake and Pete Peterson," wrote Craig Stecyk. "The armed ranch guards have again allowed them access to the surf. Perhaps the fact that Blake was the first to surf here back in 1926 allows him such special privilege. While the two enjoy the b reath-taking right slides, in downtown Los Angeles the Olympic Games are in progress and athletes from around the world perform for many tens of thousands. Here at Malibu the boys enjoy their sport absolutely alone." http://files.legendarysurfers.com/surf/legends/ls07_blake.shtml
