MERV LARSON: The Futurist [1min]

Few surfers today have heard of wave-ski-rider Merv Larson, but he may have been the most radical and creative surfer of the late 1960s. This clips shows Merv at Rincon and other nearby breaks doing things on his butt that were 10 or 20 or 50 years ahead of what conventional surfers were doing at the time.
