ARTICLE EXCERPT: On the wall over my drawing board, beside my desk in my office in our home, on the side of a ski hill, 100 feet from a chair lift, hangs lots of memorabilia. Each of these conjures up images of stuff that I have done or photos of faraway places that I would like to have visited when I was a lot younger and stronger.
One is a large poster of Gary Lopez at the Pipeline in Hawaii riding a wave that is over three times as tall as he is. It brings back a lot of memories of getting smashed by what I used to think were big waves. In the early 1940s, the waves we rode were nowhere near that big, but we got smashed and pummeled in 50-degree water long before wet suits and light surfboards were invented.
