Surfing Heritage and Culture Center announces premiere party for the opening of “Harbour Surfboards, a Retrospective”.

San Clemente CA— Surfing Heritage and Culture Center proudly presents “Harbour Surfboards, a Retrospective”.

Please join Rich, family, friends and team riders as we celebrate the life of shaping icon Rich Harbour and the 58 year legacy of Harbour Surfboards, Saturday, June 24 from 6-9pm! Many of Rich’s partners and proteges will be in attendance to honor the Harbour Surfboards legacy and talk story.

“If you were going to have one pal in the surf industry, Rich would be it. He’d make you the best-looking board, take a hot photo of you riding it, and buy beers later that afternoon. Show up five, 10, 25 years later, and he’d do it again.”

Doors open at 6.
