Dirty Water, episode forty nine, and today’s guest is described by BeachGrit writer Steve Rees, as the “most famous surf shop owner in the world” and “Part animal―Part machine―Part idiot.”

While other surf shop owners obsequiously lick the boots of the clothing majors, for this is where the cash is, he sticks to his Buell wetsuits and custom boards.

If you don’t know where his little surf shop is in Newport, Rhode Island, well, good luck finding it. He don’t have a website.

He is seventy years old, still rides a six-one and he is a skilled persuader for he knows how to worm his way into a tired heart.

Today’s guest, Mr Sid Abruzzi.

    Episode #50 Featuring David Rensin

    59:47

    Dirty Water #50 with David Rensin, the celebrated author of Miki Dora biography, All For a Few Perfect Waves. Rensin transcribed one million words in the pursuit of the truth, relatively speaking, of Miki Dora, surfing’s great Voodoo god, for his book All For a Few Perfect Waves. Dora was style in the water, suits out of it, convertibles, Hollywood and movie stars. He was also a thief, a scammer and an impossible loner who travelled the world chasing adventure and empty waves, his only real friend a King Charles spaniel called Scooter Boy. Rensin has been a surfer since the sixties and is an author whose skills make me dizzy.
