Old School Tandem Surfing Contest

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

 

Tandem surfing was all the rage back in the 1960s. The Hawaiian and California surf scene was all about getting two people on one surfboard. Many Hollywood movies were made during that decade highlighting the popularity of the sport. Fast-forward a decade or two and tandem surfing all but fell out of the spotlight. Well, today it is making a strong comeback with new competitions sprouting up all the time. Enjoy this old school video of the 1966 Makaha Tandem Surfing Contest. You just have to love old school surf videos!
