About this title

Synopsis:

East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame legend Gaulden Reed spent nearly 90 years on Daytona Beach, establishing the first concession, flying seaplanes and sailing. Here Reed shares his experiences and views, both profound and humorous. He was the feature of numerous documentaries on surfing and Daytona Beach history, and he was the frequent subject of newspaper articles for political escapades. A champion fisherman, Reed was known for landing his seaplanes and fishing off the wings, as well as for fishing from his surfboard. A pioneer surfer, he spend forty winters in Hawaii, surfing with Buffalo Kealani and other legendary beach boys. Reed recalls the changes in Daytona Beach over the years, the effects of WWII, and the first ever race down the wide flat sands of the world's most famous beach, as daring young Englishmen set new speed records, and he was there as they stored their enormous racing machines into the showroom of his father's Reed Hudson Essex each year. Contributions from surfing and sailing and other friends include Frieda Zamba, Hobie Alter, Dr. James Andrew, Cecil Lear, Mimi Munro and Dick Catri. A must-read for anyone interested in surfing, history, Daytona Beach, NASCAR, or sailing (Reed was in the Americas Cup iin his 80s), Once Upon A Wave is a treasure of remembrance, vision and the joy of the journey of life.

About the Author:

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Patti Light moved to Daytona Beach years ago to embrace and live the Salt Life. An encounter with Gaulden Reed and the subsequent friendship that lasted until his final day on this great planet introduced her to the world of surfing and its many pioneers and legends. It also awakened the writer within. Her current projects are Lifeguards of Daytona Beach and Cocoa Beach: A History of Surfing, both for Arcadia Publishing. And her regular feature, I AM LEGEND, profiles the members of the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame for Eastern Surf Magazine.
