It seems we have struck paydirt on the fore-mentioned treasure hunt for autographs for my “The Endless Summer” movie poster. The initial seeds were sown with inquiries to Mike Hynson, one of the principal surfers from that movie, via his surfboard manufacturing website, and Walter Georis, guitarist for The Sandals, the surf band who provided much of the movie’s music, via his winery website.

Imagine my surprise, then, upon getting an e-mail from Donna Klassen, the co-author of Hynson’s book, “Transcendental Memories Of A Surf Rebel” (sounds like a title friend and frequent visitor to this website Jana might identify with!), who, after thanking me for my inquiry, wrote the following:

If you’d like to buy a book, our next signing is at the ASR show at the San Diego Convention Center on August 13-15. If that doesn’t work, you can go on our website at www.endlessdreamspublishing.com and order a book or if you want to call and take care of the transaction over the phone we can do that also.

So, now I look up what this “ASR show” in San Diego might be, and as it turns out it advertises itself as a “Surf/Skate Lifestyle Fashion” show. Tracey takes one look at the website and sees they’re selling all kinds of clothes and accessories, so there’s no question about her interest. But now I’m nervous: I’d love to get the book and would happily buy a copy at the show (too bad I won’t have it as reading material on my upcoming 15-hour flight to India this weekend), but would Mr. Hynson be cool with me bringing in my poster for him to sign. Donna (she sounds like a lovely person) immediately put those concerns to rest, writing:

We’ll definitely be selling books at the ASR Show. And I’m sure Mike will sign your poster for you. See you there!

So the weekend following my return from India (God willing, of course) it looks like we’ll be traveling to San Diego for the first – and hopefully not the last – stop on this so-called treasure hunt. If I don’t hear from Walter Georis by the time I’m back from India, looks like I’ll have to take a more direct route via the telephone.

But that’s OK, it’s not supposed to be easy, right? After all, it is a treasure hunt, isn’t it?

  1. How exciting and I’d love a signed copy of said book as well….hint, hint..for which I’d gladly pay you post transaction. Rod is the same way..send him what you want signed and he signs it..after each concert he spends hours signing whatever you bring. There are the guys who wear the white hats out there and they build and gift hope. Go to San Diego.
