Considered as one of the most influential board makers of all time, and possessing a magic eye when it came to shaping in its most purest form. Dick has been regarded by many as the gurus guru, born in 1936 in Minnesota he started surfing in the early 50s when his family moved to California, eventually making his way to Hawaii in 1960, planer in hand, and the rest is is surfing history.
