Waxing a Bud Gardner.

Real Name
I only met him once, at Long Doggers in Cocoa Beach (1 of 6 surf-themed Long Doggers restaurants in Central Florida) the day it opened. As I understand it, he was one of the best surfboard shapers ever, east coast or west. Today, Bud Gardner's ashes became part of the ocean he loved. I was honored to photograph the swim out for Long Doggers this morning. Bud's boards were so recognized as art, Long Doggers commissioned him to create the bartops in each of their restaurants. There are a few of his boards hanging in various Long Doggers as well, but check out the bar the next time you're at your favorite LD. Godspeed Bud.
