Remembering Kurt “Mellow Cat” Ledterman

Former SURFER editor and La Jolla Shores legend, 1946-2015

He was “Mellow Cat” to the skate world. The surfers called him “Archie.” He surfed beautifully, with a smooth “Frye-ish” style, a mid-’60s maestro of words, charm, and Mensa-level intelligence, and a poet to any woman he befriended on the boardwalk at La Jolla Shores.

Ray Collins

The coal-miner turned photographer is bringing a new angle to oceanic imagery

The coal-mining town of Bulli, south of Sydney, is not regarded as a repository of high art, nor as a vibrant and pulsing beehive of life and color, and yet there was Ray Collins. Seven years ago the idea of his new photography book, Found at Sea, would have seemed ludicrous to him; he was still working a mile down in the mines and hadn’t shot a single frame.
