I’ll never forget my first trip to Hawaii in the summer of ’73, surfing Town with Buttons, Bertleman, Ho, Dane, Vince Klyne, and Mark. It’s good to see Buttons grew as a person as well as a surfer. God bless him and his family.
Thank you Jeff Divine for years of great photos.
Ha ! You said skateboarded.
Awesome to see these guys get their props. Always loved their style in the water and their loose sense of humor/style on land. They changed the way I skated and surfed. This is my 50th year skating and i still slash pools, bowls, & pipes iike I am surfing Queens. Great article.
