Title
Surfing at Steamer Lane
Surfing at Steamer Lane. "We didn't surf too much at Steamer Lane because if you lost your board it would go into the rocks. There were some guys surfing out there but it wasn't like it is now. There were no leashes, the size and weight of the boards we used would have torn your leg off." (Harry Mayo)
