BOBBY PATTERSON [1min]

Bobby "Flea" Patterson of Hawaii was maybe the best small-wave surfer in the world in the mid- and late-'50s. He was the Filipe Toledo of the period; small and fast and radical. Bobby is also the uncle of Timmy Patterson, the guy who shapes those magic boards for world champ Italo Ferreira.
