Robbie Dick shapes a surfboard with Glen Kennedy


Robbie Dick shapes a surfboard with Glen Kennedy in the Wilken factory on 22nd St. in Santa Monica. Glenn, a Wilken team rider, was working on a knee board when Robbie and Rich Wilken found him using the wrong tools. Robbie humorously went overboard in demonstrating the proper way. This is one in a series of 10+ photos of this event.
