Found you via "A Continuous Lean". Really dug it. All your posts would be great inspiration for writers and artists. Also very tweetable.

Very cool post. Classic Malibu, Huntington and Hermosa beach! Grannis has a great coffee table book of 1960-70s surf photos that contain a bunch of these.

The one with the Brick wall is in Hermosa beach and looks exactly the same today. (With different Bikinis of course)

Another great one is "surf fever" by John Severson.
