Rex Huffman photographed in the late '70s by Kirk Aeder. Big Rock was his stage...still is on the rare worthy day. Amazing surfer. Our latter day stand up approach to riding short fishes at the reefs is inspired by Rex's kneeboarding. He showed us that maybe what seemed impossible was possible on a tiny little fish. 'They're great for small mushy waves..." yeah, right. I believe all the boards shown here were shaped by Steve Lis...whose incredible surfing had no doubt inspired Rex and many others 10 years earlier in '68. photos by Aeder.
