Most of the guys being mentioned were a bit older than me. (I was in 9th grade when crankit graduated from SHS.) So, I'm not the authority, that's for sure. Just hitting my recollections. Other names - Larry Mann )(his mom collected lunch money at SP Elem), Walt Santee (his sister, Karen, babysat for me and my younger brothers), Harry Clark, Joe Nanny, Pat Kyle, Jack Kirschenbaum, and a bunch more that escape me now.

Bernard's Surf Restaurants crab bisque soup was the best I have ever had, and their skirt steak.

Alma's for a great pizza and Italian food & Ramon's for a great Caesar salad.  Lums in Satelite Bch. after surfing.

Running the AP's at P.A.F.B. ragged on dirt bikes--

    Nice! Alot of  history there, its cool to see that there are lifetime locals still involved in surfing. This only goes back to the 80s but does anybody remember " The Morning Sun " restaurant ? It was located in the corner of the plaza that MTB and Bunkys are located. That was the only place that would show surf movies while you dined and was sure to get you amped for the morning sesh .

Wet "T" Shirt contests at Moe Kirschenbaum's Missile Lounge (I think that was the name) across from Bernard's Surf.

Jeff Crawford, Greg Loehr and Mark Rhodes on the Oceanside Surf Shop Team.

20 cent tolls on Pineda and 528 causeways. (Always paid the grumpy Indian toll taker in pennies, he HATED that!)

The Booby Trap Lounge! (No Comment)

George Panton's "Desperation" (aka "Inspiration) Surf Shop in South Cocoa Bech next to the 7-11.

Speaking of "Inspiration" Surfboards. My younger son "rescued" one from a trash pile some weeks back and brought it to me to make it rideable. Though it's in one piece it's beat to hell and brown and above my repair skills. I haven't measured it but it's a single fin semi gun shape, 3 stringers around 7'0". Definitely an early '70's shape. Small "Inspiration" decal on the deck near the nose.

 Remember " Clines' bait and tackle "?  The owner had a huge gun collection strewn about the place in no particular order literally piled up in some cases. I'd say maybe 600 + guns maybe more, everything from muskets to machine guns. I tried to do an internet search to be more acurate but found nothing. Those who have been there would agree that it was cool to browse around in there while picking up bait.

Old man Cline got ripped off years ago. He had way more than 600 guns, and would get really pissed if you tried to buy any of them. Had an old red Doberman (that roamed the store)who would have followed a burglar home. I heard that his survivors did sell the remainder of the gun collection for a pretty penny.

 Then there was" Bills bait and tackle" which was a bar/resturaunt , i'm not sure they even sold bait but they had the best homestyle meals there and the owner would cash everyones paychecks for them on Fridays- good time to collect money for the tabs he would let people run through the week. Another place that was pretty cool was " Fuzzys' second hand store on the corner of Highland and EauGallie Blvd. He had everything from baseball gloves to old fishing gear piled high and hanging from the ceiling. I bought my first surfboard there for about $ 15.00 ( had more holes than a spaghetti colander) i think i spent more than that on " Dupont clear cement " to patch them, i had only been exposed to surfing once by then and didn't know better - hell, i didn't even know they had surf magazines by then.

Yes.  I remember operation stretch at Freedom 7 and I have the original pictures that were published in the Today Paper from those days.  My family was one of the original Cocoa Beach families back in the day of the Apollo moon landings. Our couch (Stetson?) had us kids go out to the islands and camp for the night and go through all of that outdoors survival stuff.  I remember it well and have the original newspaper when it was covered in the paper.  Call me if you are interested.  518-306-6216.

Anyone remember Catri's original Surfboard Hawaii shop in Satellite Beach? It was in the NW corner of the building where Ricky Carroll had his shop. IT was maybe 20' by 20'. Shagg had a sewing machine in there and made custom fit lined corduroy baggies, for $8.00. My mom flipped when I bought a pair. It was there a short while, maybe a year, before they moved it to Indialantic.

Standard attire for us were pocket tee shirts from J. C. Penney's back then. Saw my first silk screened Surfboards Hawaii tee there. All of $2.00 bucks, with the extra large logo script on the back.

Bought my first custom board there. Oh, did we think we were hot shit back then, or what!?

The Rest across from the Glass Bank (it has been a 10000 dif ones) was a Pizza place in the mid 70's. Can not remember the name (I am detecting a theme here) ... I do remember that the owners had an INSANELY hot daughter!
Pizza Joes!! My Dad would take me there after I got in trouble at school per my Moms advice. He'd drink beers and I'd get a slice of pizza "tell your Mom we had a talk" I'll never forget that. The surf swing at the end of Dempsy dr. The half pipe in the islands across from Dempsy park that I almost broke my neck on. Pine trees all over the beaches. My cousin was married at Gatsbys and I was the ring bearer. TONS of memories. Great thread.

hah, I surf by the old Hess station frequently.  My wife is SHS '73 and her sister is '71 and grew up off Desoto/Marco Way.  My buddy Billy ('71) reminds me of a jewish baker he used to work at around there also.
