Aloha and Farewell John Severson

May 31, 2017

“I first met John Severson in 1960 when he came into my surf shop selling his new magazine ‘The Surfer’.  In 1961 he designed this ad for me and in the next 15 years we placed 61 ads in his magazine. John became a close personal friend, he was a good guy, a good surfer and a great artist.  Rest In Peace John.  You will be missed.”
