DAVE C. REYNOLDS

When we asked Huntington Beach artist Dave C. Reynolds if he still held the title for handcrafting more surf trophies than anyone else in the world, he confidently replied, "Hell yeah I do!" The Orange County native has been professionally crafting handmade surf woodworks and paintings since 1988, and he's been surfing the waters of Seal Beach and HB for more than three decades. If there's anyone who can vouch for the beauty of Surf City's famed waters and solid community, it's Reynolds.

Born in Buena Park, Reynolds always found himself drawn to the sea. Before teenage Reynolds scored his first surfboard for $17 at a garage sale, the self-taught surfer strapped an air mattress or "whatever [he] could get [his] hands on" to his handlebars and pedaled 13 miles to surf at the famous HB Pier and popular Seal Beach surf spot Crabs. "These kids nowadays are kind of pussies compared to what we had to do," says Reynolds, whose surf stories trace multiple-day surfing adventures in the days when camping on the beach was still legal.
