Davey Miller

Back in the saddle again…lots going on lately…we’ll chat you up later…

When you are done visiting the shop, be sure to check out “WATER”, a Surfrider Foundation Art Exhibition Benefit

Davey Miller was on hand with some of his latest art pieces and a jazz trio…Davey has performed with many Jazz masters including: Mitch Forman (Stan Gets, Wayne Shorter), John Beasly (Miles Davis, Freddy Hubbard), Ric Fierabracci (Chick Corea, Billy Cobham Spectrum band), Brad Rabuchin (Ray Charles), Doug Webb (Horace Silver)…

I used to surf with Davey around Ventura and the Gold Coast back the 70’s and 80’s, as he was carving out a niche while living beachfront at Pipeline on the North Shore…

“In 1980, at age 20, Davey Miller arrived on North Shore Oahu and cut himself out a
niche as one of its top riders. He placed in the finals at Huge Pipeline and Sunset
Beach, and rode Waimea with only a handful of his peers. Charging with no fear or
thought of bodily harm, Davey surfed solid for 20 years. At age 38 he reclaimed a
final at Very Large Pipeline with 19 year-old Andy Irons. He also beat out Kelly Slater
at Sunset Beach in the semi-finals. Davey was mostly noted for being one of the top
10 surfers of all time at Backdoor Pipeline.”

Davey was in the shop checking out SUP’s…we’re gonna hook him up so he can charge some of the big reef breaks this coming Winter…

I’ve always liked Davey Miller’s art…didn’t have enough extra money laying around back in the college days to spend on art…but, he offered me some nice pieces…funny how it all works out…scale of economy…he’s doing his best work now…he’s getting top dollar for it…and, we can actually afford it…go figure!…;-)
