Legend and Surf Photography Icon, Leroy Grannis, Passes Away at 93
June 29, 2011
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.
When I started traveling years ago I noticed how my surfing improved. Some people ask me what my favorite wave is in the entire world and I always pause and think for a moment. Although it’s hard to choose an all-time favorite, I always think of my time spent in Australia.
Bing Surfboards teamed up with Duck Foot Brewing to create a perfect 'logger' beer. Brewed for the surfer in mind, the Bing Logger is a perfect day drinking beer suited for long days hanging at the beach, or wherever you find yourself under the sun.
