Fish, did you know the guy with the black hair is Hawaiian born surfing legend David Nuuhiwa? He will turn 70 later this month and lives in Huntington Beach. (Another Orange County guy Cool ) The first pic was posted on TheSamba some years ago but the other two I don't remember having seen before. I can only assume the third pic is him also. That pic looks like it would be located not far from the coast somewhere south of San Francisco. What he would be doing on stage at some concert I have no idea. I didn't find any info about him being a musician.

Probably wasn't him. A very brief Google image search turned this up:

I was right about the location being south of San Francisco -- way south. I am embarrassed to say that I drove Laguna Canyon Road its entire length last year and I had no idea the photo was of those hills.

I try to pick up clues from these old pics. The '59 Ford wagon and the Beetle in the first pic would have me believe that the date of the pic is likely not later than 1965. Plenty of '59 Fords were off the roads after 1965; by 1969 even in SoCal where rust is less a factor they were rare. I'm not that good at placing a Beetle YOM but I think I can safely say that that one is no later than 1965. It has a shiny new look to it. Also, that style of Maryland plate dates its issuance to 1964 - '65. I'm guessing the season is late Fall. Notice the mother is holding a cigarette in her right hand.


The small side windows and vertical rear edge of the vent window tell me the bug is no newer than 1964 MY.

Yes, I did. He was a hella surfer back in the day. He was in Five Summer Stories if you every saw that. Did you know in the other beach picture the three guys are David Nuuhiwa, Greg Person and Les Potts 1971 Salt Creek, Ca.
Les Potts is one of the founders of the Surf Rider Foundation amongst other achievements.
The last picture was taken at Laguna Canyon in the Sixties at the Colony for the Arts.

It's important to always say "horses!", whenever you see horses.

one of several "car free Sunday" dates in 1973 ordered by the Netherland government in response to OPEC reduction of oil supplies following the Yom Kippor War. Here in the US, gasoline rationing would take place. Thank Nixon for taking us off the gold standard of the dollar in 1971. Fun times we are still paying for today. Rolling Eyes
