A legendary surfing pioneer, Tom Blake’s contributions to the sport live among us to this day. From the invention of the surfboard fin and the development of the first lightweight board, to his chronicles of the early days of the sport through writing and photography, Blake stood tall as one of the most storied watermen of surfing’s modern era.
This site was created to raise of awareness of Blake’s accomplishments and to serve as a reminder of how his innovations shaped surfing as we know it. If you are a surfer (or if you simply appreciate the sport itself) this page accepts donations to fund a memorial statue/historical marker for Blake. The statue will be donated to Blake’s home state of Wisconsin for installation along the lakefront.
Please consider a donation to help honor Blake and his contributions to the sport. All donations are tax-deductible.
