This week's Katin Vault discovery features another epic photograph straight from the Kanvas by Katin surf shop.
This is a photograph from 1970 of Nancy Katin with local surfer rocking his custom trunks outside the Katin shop.
Nancy became known as the “First Lady of Surfing,” not only because of her quality clothing, but also because she genuinely befriended the surfers that came to her shop, and even acted as second mom to most. Despite the initial local dislike for the sport of surfing, Nancy always made sure that Katin’s small surf shop had a counter, with a couch and chairs, for any and all surfers to kick back, relax and swap stories.
Stay tuned for next week's Katin Vault throwback!
