40 Groovy Pictures Capture Beach Scenes in the U.S During the 1960s

LeRoy (Granny) Grannis has been both a surfer and photographer since before the use of fiberglass and plastic foam in surfboards. LeRoy entered the rank of professional photographers in 1959, when his pictures appeared in the first surf magazines. LeRoy was also co-editor of International Surfing which first appeared in December 1964.

LeRoy always insists on top quality pictures and states that there is always room for any photographer who does top quality work. He began photographing the scene in California and Hawaii in the longboard Gidget era of the early 1960s.
