1883 George Freeth was born
1900's Freeth is out surfin' on wooden planks while everyone else is scared of the mighty Pacific
1907 Freeth puts on a surfing show in Redondo to promote a new LA railway and everyone gets stoked.
1908 Freeth was titled "The First Man to Surf California"
1908-1919 Freeth surfed empty peaks, invented lifeguard saving devices, saved hundreds of people in the ocean.
1919 Freeth died from influenza from non-stop savin' people in the cold winter
2008 Freeth's bust statue stolen from Redondo. Maybe from some kids who blamed him for the insane crowds in California. More likely stolen by some kooks who needed a quick buck and don't know their surf history.

Surf's been small but fun. Even rode a l-l-l-longboard for once. Nice to ride forever and easily on a big plank, but a little boring compared to fish.
