Jackie Baxter 2009
A fearless regular footer from Huntington Beach, Jackie earned his reputation by tackling Pipeline and Sunset Beach in the late '60s. Baxter grew up in Venice in the '50s. By age 12 he was hitchhiking for rides to Malibu with his "wood" Velzy or Jacobs surfboards in hand. By the mid '60s Jackie was riding for Dewey Weber and, in 1967, Sonny Vardeman introduced a Jackie Baxter Model-the same year he moved to Hawaii. In 1971, he was an invitee to the prestigious 1971 Duke Kahanamoku Classic. His son Josh is a world class longboarder.
