Patrick Tehan has over 40 years experience as a photojournalist, most recently as staff photographer at the Mercury News. He was inspired by the sheer  beauty of the sport of surfing when he moved to Newport Beach as staff photographer for the Orange County Register.  He was compelled to capture the incredible passion and dedication of those who literally live to ride the waves.  These photos were made during his nine years in Southern Californian and twenty-eight years in Santa Cruz County.  This show is his appreciation for all the surfers he has been privileged to photograph.

Exhibit runs July 1- August 28

Gallery Hours:  Thursday - Sunday 1-4 and by appointment.
