Driving this psychedelic V.W. van is George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku (a.k.a- "the Big Kahuna"). Supposedly, surfing was introduced to San Diego at Ocean Beach in 1916 when a local lifeguard borrowed a board from the Duke. Others say, it's possible that Freeth surfed there between 1907 and 1909. By 1966, the sport was taking off in So. Cal. and the World Surfing Championship was held in O.B. Nat Young won the event and was named world surfing champion.
