Dale Velzy's is a story set in a time and place where a combination of climate, geography, local aerospace industry materials and Hollywood's media machine made California and surfing virtually synonymous.

Holmes, Paul (2006).

He opened the first professional surf shop in Manhattan Beach, California in 1950, personally hand fashioning the surfboards from wood or synthetic material. By 1960, Velzy owned five retail shops and three production facilities in California and Hawaii. He was known as "Hawk" for his keen eyesight. Holmes, Paul (2006).

Dale Velzy, a master surfboard maker widely considered one of the men . Mr. Holmes's book, "Dale Velzy Is Hawk," is scheduled to be published this fall by the Surf Education Committee, a nonprofit organization.

Dale Velzy, a master surfboard maker widely considered one of the men responsible for the rise of the California surfer culture in the years after World War II, died on May 26 at a hospital in Mission Viejo, Calif. He was 77 and lived in San Clemente. The process itself is really a three-dimensional sculpture," Paul Holmes, the author of a coming biography of Mr. Velzy, said in a telephone interview yesterday. And that three-dimensional sculpture has to work on, in and through the water.

I am grateful, almost daily, for Dale Velzy. I am grateful, almost daily, for Dale Velzy. Not so much because of what he did for board design, although that too. Mostly for the style, the grin, the flask in his back pocket, and the fact that he was one-third cowboy and didn’t give a rat’s ass if that wasn’t surf.

Paul Holmes, founder and chair of The Holmes Group, has been writing about public relations for more than 25 years.

The amazing adventures of a larger-than-life California surfer, cowboy, biker, hot-rodder and board design pioneer, and his role in the birth of the $10 billion global boardsports business. Dale Velzy's story is set in a time and place where a combination of climate, geography, local aerospace industry materials and Hollywood's media machine made California and surfing virtually synonymous, giving rise to a new business model and a youth culture phenomenon that swept the world. Velzy, known as Hawk, didn't single-handedly invent the surf lifestyle and industry, but his pioneering work as a craftsman, his charismatic personality and his knack for sales and promotions did much to establish the ethos, attitude and style. Surfing and the surf industry couldn't have developed without individuals as talented, determined, and downright unconventional as Dale Velzy. Through the prism of his extraordinary life, this book shows how it happened.
  • As a second cousin of Dale's but about 14 years younger, he was a frequent part of our family gatherings and I saw him pretty often when I lived in Southern California; the photo of his family shows several of my grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., with him. My mom took me to his shop in Manhattan Beach just above the pier, and to his shop in Malibu, where I watched him shape for awhile. He and my dad, who was born in Hermosa Beach, used to surf the outflow from the Edison Electric plant there in winter. I would run across him from time to time when I lived at the beaches there, and folks used to tell me stories, too, so I knew quite a bit about him.

    But not nearly so much as is in this book, and his full history is mind blowing. He was/is a legend in his own time, living free on the beaches under lifeguard boats, riding horses on the beach, downtown, all over; doing what Dale loved, and that was a lot.

    The entire, complete, fantastic story is laid out in this book in a fashion that only someone with Paul Holmes' background as a highly respected surfer/writer/editor of surfing stories, surfing magazines, and friend of Dale's could have done, and I am thankful to him for having done so. His background and credentials clearly got him the history and the stories from those who lived it, and he tells the story as only a polished professional can do.

    Nice to see, too, is that this biography was put together by surfers who created the sport. There are several out that, while glossy, read far more like just another publicity release from just another publicity agent. This book runs over with truth and honesty in depicting not just the man, Dale Velzy, but the California that only existed in one time and place is now, sadly, only history.

    My hat is off to Paul Holmes and this great work. And any time you want, Paul, you can call me and talk about Dale. If you're not still here, then I'll wait to see if we met on the other side.

  • Outstanding book for my library...and signed by Dale!

  • I wanted to learn more about the origins of surfing and how it came to be in California. I don't even surf! I was intrigued about how surfing and the hot rod scene blended together. It's a long read. I had to read it in several setting just because of the content of the book. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about
    the history of surfing, the evolution of surf board construction and the different personalities who became the pioneers in the surf board industry.

  • Excellent Book, well written and covers the early history of surfing. Dale Velzy was instrumental in surfboard making and its history from its early infancy.
    This book tells and shows how Dale Velzy brought surfing on solid wood surfboards through to his influences on current designs.
    It tells and shows how the Hawk liked to roll with his own style and and class and with an awsome skill for making surfboards.
    The history of surfing started in Hawaii, the word spread by the Duke then Tom Blake then Velzy
