Windansea Surf Shack

Post by koimaster » April 15th 2022, 10:43pm

In the mid-1940s, a group of California surfer friends built a surf shack at Windansea Beach that would become one of La Jolla's most iconic landmarks.

Originally called Neptune Beach, Windansea got its name from the old hotel across the way owned by the Snell family.

The place quickly became a popular surf spot in Southern California and the home of Golden State's original surf shack.

The surfers at Windansea were often at the forefront of design and innovation.

For example, they were the first to try the foam surfboards that began to arrive with the post-World War II improved technology.

As a result, varnished wood surfboards disappeared along with hollow paddleboards because they became obsolete.

The historic shed was an idea of half a dozen passionate wave riders, who were forever immortalized in a black and white picture.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
