No, name doesn't ring a bell.
I remember walking into Midge Farrally's shop to buy some surfboard materials late 1980, walking up the road I saw Simon Anderson's old brown ford parked there with a 3 fin surfboard sticking out the back window .. I asked Midge what's with Simon's board with 3 fins .. he brushed it off, saying Simon is "out There" and each to his own ... Simon won the Bells Beach surf comp Easter 81, one round was 12- 15" and the "thruster" ripped it apart, that was a huge change in surfing. I made plenty 3 fin boards from that day on. It was only ever a hobby for me.
Wayne had a board manufacturing operation in Hermosa Beach, CA and was a legendary surfer in the area. He was in the movie "The Endless Summer." The opening scene is Wayne surfing in Hawaii where he was born. Born in Hawaii of Japanese descent, they put him in the Japanese-American sports hall of fame. I was lucky to know him and work with him, in a manner of speaking, at one time. He was a guy who lived his life with the purpose of enjoying every minute. Because of that everyone who came in contact with him loved him. He is very much missed (died in 2005). Here's his shop site...
