San Clemente CA— Make your way to the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center (SHACC) in San Clemente, CA on Friday night Dec. 4th from 6-9pm, to celebrate the launch of Naughton/Peterson’s newly released photo/journal book, SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT WAVE. Admission is free for SHACC members and $5 for non-members.
Join us for an evening of surf stories, a brief slide show and book signings with two of surfing’s original self proclaimed dirt-bag travelers, Kevin Naughton and Craig Peterson. Their classic articles of surf-travel-misadventures in the ’70s and ’80s for SURFER Magazine inspired a generation to a life on the road of feral travel.
Don’t miss this rare personal appearance by Kevin and Craig as they share personal accounts of how they got started as teenagers with SURFER Magazine, including their groundbreaking trips in 1973 that put Central America and mainland Mexico on the surf map. You’ll hear how they stumbled upon the epic big waves at Petacalco, how the cover story in SURFER sent shock waves through the surf world, and how the fallout from the articles changed the way we look at secret surf spots. These two guys know how to tell a good story and spin a yarn, while keeping it fun and down-to-earth.
Get ready for a night of classic photos and incredible tales, a portion of the proceeds from book sales will benefit SHACC. (Oh, and if you get lost on the way, you’re off to a good start). SHACC is located 110 Calle Iglesia, San Clemente 92672.
We’ll have beverages available from Left Coast Brewery beers, Longboard Vineyards wines, Kona Red energy drinks and Hawaiian Spring Waters.
