Is it possible to have a surf hero who you have only seen 2 waves ridden by, I think so in ‘A Winters Tale’, a surfer called Craig Wilson rides 2 waves at Makaha and rides them so well he immediately becomes my favourite surfer, boom. I searched around I found this one image by Art Brewer, and saw some photos in a long-lost Surfing World Magazine, that’s it.
Watching the Movie ‘Super Session’ Larry Bertleman is talking and he mentions his name so that’s good enough he is a legit super surfer in my mind, but then nothing. Now last night I saw a great movie called ‘Searching for Sugarman’, about some fans in South Africa looking for Rodriguez the singer and how they went about it and found him, it was a moving story and great movie.
So if anyone has some surf shots of the great Craig Wilson from Hawaii I believe Westside but I could be wrong, send them my way, would be awesome to post them up for all to see.
