SURFER welcomes you to join us tonight, Friday, (June 26, 2009) as we review a half-century of our most iconic photos as part of The Surfing Heritage Foundation’s Light Table Sessions.

Photo Editor Grant Ellis will be sharing an amazing collection of work showcasing SURFER Magazine's history, and the audience will get to view some of SURFER’S archives – showing past images that were on the cutting-edge of surf photography for their time and current photos still renown for their breath-taking imagery around the world.

Steve Pezman, publisher of The Surfers Journal, states, "The photo editors are the generals of this specialized battlefield and in the rare occasion that they consent to put on slide shows, it becomes an unspoken challenge for each to present the most stunning statement possible on the state-of-the-art of surfing and surf photography."

Join us tonight.

Where: The Surfing Heritage Foundation's cultural heritage facility located at 110 Calle Iglesia, San Clemente, CA 92672.

When: Show time is 7:30 pm and doors open to the general public at 7:00 pm. Allow time to view our special surf art exhibit.

Cost: General admission is $15. Proceeds from the evening go to the Surfing Heritage Foundation and their ongoing work of preserving surf culture for the education and appreciation of current and future generations.
