The surfing community suffered a great loss this February when surfer and renowned photographer, Leroy Grannis, passed away at age 93. A Hermosa Beach local, Grannis was inducted into both the Surfing Walk of Fame and the International Surfing Hall of Fame and went on to co-found International Surfing, now known as Surfing Magazine. This past weekend we traveled back to our roots in Hermosa Beach to celebrate his life, legacy and contribution to surfing.
