This photo was donated by the Bascom family and was given to Willard Bascom by Ron Drummond. On the back of the photo is a handwritten note which reads:
"The inner peace that comes with the quiet contemplation of a beach on a still calm morning, or the feeling of exhilaration that comes from riding a great wave in a small boat, is more reward than most will ever know."
This we have in common!
Update (2017): I spoke with Ron Drummond's nephew, Tom, a few years ago and he informed me that "the surfer sitting just of Ron's bow is none other than Duke Kahanamoku". Well, I'll be a pickled popsicle stick(le).
