Mitch Abshire by Dane peterson
After yesterdays sad news of Andy Irons passing away I have been reading lots of blogs and heart felt words about a great surfer. In that process I came to my regular look into Dane Petersons amazing Blog and have snatched this great shot he's taken of Mitch Abshire, californian legend, owner of Captains Helm. I read a story about the man in an old issue of longboard magazine, a story worth reading and one regret I have from being in california this past summer is not getting the chance, or should i say not making more of an effort, to drop into to meet him. Classic surfer with a story to tell, classic shot by DP.
