“San Diego beach boys scan the waves and sun-kissed babes hold court in Ron Church’s immortal images of 60s West Coast surf culture. “A person on a big wave is great,” says Church’s widow, Shirley Richards. “But it was the fact that he devoted so much of it to the culture, the clothes, the hairstyles, the bathing suits, the everything. Taking those pictures is what made the difference.”
