Surfing Walk of Fame

Dale Velzy 1997
Born in Hermosa Beach, the son of a lifeguard, Dale "Hawk" Velzy is a legend in surfboard manufacturing. Emerging as a new shaper in the early 1950's, he is credited with putting many California kids in the water on his boards. He joined forces with Hap Jacobs to crate the Velzy/Jacobs label, and by 1960 he was on his own cranking out Velzy boards in three shops in California.
