Denny Childs started his own board company called Southern Comfort in the winter of ’73 after spending his apprenticeship in board shaping at Jackson Surfboards. Along with partner Bob Colligan they started in an old house as the factory at Taren Point with $1000.00 and 5 custom orders. By 75 when the shot below was taken at Wanda, Denny’s custom shapes were in demand. Photo Peter Simons.
