The much-anticipated biography of flamboyant surfing legend Dewey Weber (1938-1993) is the inspiration for an exhibition that will open to the public Sunday, Sept. 30 and run through Sunday, Nov. 4 at Surfing Heritage Foundation, 110 Calle Iglesia, San Clemente.
“Little Man On Wheels” is the story of the modern surf culture in Southern California coming of age. South Bay surfing sensation Dewey Weber was at the center of the action.
The exhibition, “Little Man On Wheels,” is curated by Barry Haun and consists of key surfboards (such as the Dewey Weber Performer, the single most produced longboard model in the history of surfing), photographs, illustrations, and other objects that punctuate the development of Dewey Weber as an iconic surfer, millionaire businessman, and tireless industry promoter.
The 215-page, fully illustrated book by author Gerald B. Derloshon includes a foreword by 1966 World Champion Nat Young and an introduction by pioneering big wave rider Greg Noll, and photorgraphs by acclaimed surfing master lensmen such as Ron Stoner.
The Member’s reception and book signing is Saturday, Sept. 29. Become a Member of Surfing Heritage Foundation and receive an invitation to this exclusive reception.
