Hello, I’m Bob Morrissey (AKA Robert) I started surfing and collecting surf posters back in Jr. high and high school in the late 50’s and early 60’s.

My entire bedroom walls at home were covered with Surf Movie posters. I was in West Shore Surf Club comprised of guys from all the Long Beach High Schools, Millikan, Lakewood, Poly, St. Anthonys and Wilson, which I graduated from in 1963. Our favorite surf spots and hang outs were River (AKA, Power Plant), Surfside, Bolsa Chica, and the Cliffs.

I saw the majority of the movies of the day by the renowned Bruce Brown and John Severson who personally narrated the venues to hooting audiences from Laguna Beach to Santa Monica and beyond.

Some of these posters have evidence of aging with pin and staple holes, tape and because of the low quality production materials used they do have an vintage appearance.
The good news is that for almost 50 years these posters have been stored flat in a semi archival environment so there is no water, mould or insect damage. I have given an accurate written description of the physical condition of the individual posters which range from mint condition to the ragged. I have mounted all the posters with archival polypropylene mounting corners on ¼ inch foam core board inserted into clear polyester bag.

These original posters document the surf culture of 60’s I would like to see these historic pieces of surf memorabilia go to an appreciative collector.
Your welcome to contact me for any further information
