Ken Merrill’s Surfboard Museum Tour – VIDEO, Part 4

DENNIS – In part 4 of Cape Cod Wave’s video tour of Ken Merrill’s surfboard collection, our tour guide takes us back to the 1960s for several boards with stories, including one that still has a sales slip attached.

Plus, some classic 60s and early 70s designs and the interesting perspective Chick Frodigh, co-host of the tour, once had on surfers about 40 years old. And a classic t-shirt as well.

Yes, there is still one more part of the tour to go.

PART 5 – Focuses on Merrill’s most valuable board bought over a 4-year period, with an interesting backstory and even a bit about when surfers needed a license to surf. Plus, why does he collect surfboards? And finally, what do surfers watch on TV? You won’t want to miss the ending.
