    I would like to purchase a copy of your “40th Aniversary Issue.”
    I am featured so wonderfully anonymously, in a b/w photo, on a fun 5 foot wave at Malibu; joined in comradeire’, with 5 of my stalwart companions.
    Two are bailing out in desperation. (One never prepares for the Southern Hemi’s taxation on the body’s enegy stores .) Another bold lad Straight Off Adolph, was a tad late on the hop up and is not lined up for the slot . Me I had the good luck to just throw myself down the wall hoping the round Vee and the rails held. Big malibu and small Malibu are both the same creature. I rememered that Bruce Jones Beak Nose, my skinny knocked kneed stance and my Rod Stewart suitable for guitar playing, nightclubing, and keeping the water out of your eyes in just these situations The caption reads: “Cross town traffic at Malibu.” I also got a anonymous b/w on a 5 ft er, in the Guide to Surfing California. I have been buying your Magazine since the 1st store issues.xxxoooxxx T.C. Canterbury still ride Bruce Jones boards both pics around 1973
