Leroy Grannis 1999
When is comes to classic surfing culture photography, Leroy Grannis is the master. With his photographic images, Grannis is the creator of many of the 1960's most enduring surfing images.
During the 1930s he became a key member of the legendary Palos Verdes Surf Club, a group that dramatically influenced the growth of surfing in California.
Searching to expand from shooting surfing strictly from the beach, he developed innovative waterproof camera housing designs in the 1960s. His photographs helped launch an innovative new magazine called Sports Illustrated in 1962, and he was the founding editor at Surfing Magazine in 1964.
