    More Info



    You won’t find Echo Beach on any map. But for a band of surfers from Newport Beach the stretch between 52nd and 56th street was an entire universe of ‘80s cool. These Day-Glo surfers singlehandedly demolished the laid-back ‘70s style with a loud blast of Devo and attitude. Out of the water, they wore Aquanet pompadours, Wayfarers, and neon boardshorts. In the water, they ripped up the wave two feet from local photographer Mike Moir’s Canon fish eye.
