It was a blast from the past when 150 surf-savvy guys and gals made their way to the O.C. Mart Mix for Quiksilver’s The Eighties at Echo Beach book signing. Guests grooved while a DJ spun ’80s vinyl, sipped bright beverages and snacked on a delish lineup of treats. And surf pros Jeff Parker, Preston Murray and John Gothard signed book copies for eager fans; yep, they were just a few of the watermen, surfboard shapers and photogs who haunted that famed stretch of beach between 52nd and 56th in Newport during the ’80s. Those were the days… Photos by Rick Chatillon
