" Credited by Joe Quigg as 'being the first surfer in either California or Hawaii to develop the
radical, slashing style of high performance surfing' ... Comments Williams, 'I rode Quigg boards
that he shaped for girls. They were the only ones short and light enough for hot-dogging ' ".
Actor Peter Lawford, Robyn Grigg and others,
The Pit , Malibu, circa 1953.

Lawford brought a similar fibreglassed balsawood
board to Australia in 1950,
while on location to shoot Kangaroo.
