Mike Diffenderfer

I was talking to my Dad today about some old surf photos from the 70's and we came across this photo of surfer/shaper Mike Diffenderfer from San Diego. My Dad was saying how he had Mr. Diffenderfer shape my Dad a custom board in 1970: a 7'10" swallow tail, 17" in the nose, 23" width, and 19" in the tail. It had a scooped nose, and downrails, made for straight line surfing at Newbreak. From what my Dad told me, Mike Diffenderfer had his shop in Ocean Beach, on Voltaire st. The Hennessey Diffenderfer Shop. Rest in Peace Mr. Diffenderfer (1937-2002)
