Carmel Beach surfers, 1974

Three guys out for a surf at Carmel Beach in 1974 wearing wetsuits of various designs.  One thing for sure the surfer in the middle of this group is going to be cold wearing only a vest.  All three carrying single-fin boards with no leashes.  The surfer on the left is intent on checking the best place in the lineup to paddle out.  The photo was taken in June, which means this group was about to surf waves from a wind-swell, which is common for Carmel Beach in the summer.
