Lorrin "Whitey" Harrison was a surfer. You may have seen him in 1993 on the ArmorAll television commercial where he appears strumming his ukelele and singing. Laughing, he introduces himself then proceeds to surf his way through the rest of the segment before he drives off in a red sports car. A portion of this commercial was aired on national news when he died abruptly the same year at 80 years old. The public was captivated by this lively little old man in a palm frond hat.From the Back Cover:
The mark of a true waterman was that he built his own toys and tools. For Lorrin Harrison, that list included outrigger canoes, lobster traps, hats woven of coco-palm leaves and surfboards, from the solid wooden planks of the early 1900s to the urethane foam models of today. In the process, Lorrin and his pals unconsciously invented the contemporary beach life style.
