Today my cousin Ian sent me some photos of my grandfather, Tom Lind, taken in 1938 or 1939. Both because I miss "Pops" terribly (he passed in 1991) and because they're classic photos of early surf culture, I thought I'd share them here:
One of my better-kept secrets is that my people used to be cool.
(Speaking of which--Ian just discovered that his father, my grandfather's brother, does not dye his hair. And he's 95. Check out the photo. WTF?)
