Don’t miss the Surfing Heritage Foundation‘s next exhibit and book release of Little Man On Wheels, a 215-page publication about the life of iconic surfer and businessman, Dewey Weber. The much-anticipated biography of flamboyant surfing legend Dewey Weber (1938-1993) is the inspiration for an exhibition at Surfing Heritage Foundation that will open to the public Sunday, September 30th and run through December 30th, 2012.
The Surfing Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, presenting and promoting surfing’s heritage for the appreciation and education of current and future generations; and to achieving a goal of surfing being more accurately understood, represented and enjoyed.

As a tireless industry promoter, Weber’s life is portrayed through the entire book and will be exhibited Saturday, September 29th from 6-9pm. Iconic Weber boards, photos from the best photographers in the industry of that era, cutting edge advertising and popping Weber graphics will make this an unforgettable evening! The members will be honored with a special panel of surf legends including Kemp Aaberg, Lonnie Argabright, Linda Benson, Don Craig, Skip Frye, Greg Noll, Steve Pezman, Mike Tabeling, Caroline Weber and Shea Weber.
The exhibition Little Man On Wheels is organized by SHF Curator and Creative Director Barry Haun and consists of key surfboards (such as the Dewey Weber Performer, the single most produced longboard model in the history of surfing), photographs, illustrations, and other objects that punctuate the development of Dewey Weber as an icon.
