This post is after the fact for this event but that’s because it was intended to be a surprise for Jeff Big Tiki Dude which last Sunday was presented The Earl Beasley Endowment Huntington Beach International Surf Museum Lifetime Membership Award for his contribution to the museum and his many years of support of the surf music scene. This was a well deserved acknowledgement for Jeff who spends a lot of his time making sure that surf music remains alive and well in Orange County and beyond.

Wow....that's awesome !
An award in ANYTHING is cool, but Jeff is really passionate about surf music, and I'd say this is well earned.
Congrats BTD...Naysayers be damned !

I'm sorry to hear about Baja Marty. I remember the benefit you threw for him last Oct, how even in his weakened condition he went up to the stage to conduct the surf band. That he could have such a love for life while battling cancer was inspiring.
You are a good friend.
