RIP soul shaper Mike Griffin. Mike was a popular character in the San Diego surf scene. A soft spoken gentleman who made clean surfboards (usually without logos and unsigned yet still distinct). He was stoked on life and surfing. Mike had been fighting off cancer for years and years.
On a balmy August evening with a full moon rising, Peter St. Pierre aka “Peter Pinline” was inducted into the San Diego Surfing Hall of Fame for his 50+ years of building surfboards in San Diego county.
Master of ceremonies was surfer/shaper Hank Warner. The SDSHOF is part of the annual San Diego Surf Film Festival, a week long event.
