Benefit: SeaVees Legend Series

Renny Yater Custom Surfboard for Auction


Renny Yater helped put surfing on the map as one of the first surfboard shapers to mass market his products in the 1950s. He moved his shop from San Clemente to Santa Barbara in 1959 and retains a presence here today with his showroom at Surf n’ Wear’s the Beach House on lower State Street. Yater still crafts custom boards and has made one especially for Goleta-based shoe company SeaVees’ 50th anniversary. To celebrate their five decades in business, SeaVees has launched the year-long Legend Series, which features collaboration with Californians who embody the company’s West Coast spirit. Yater is the first to pair with them; a custom Yater Spoon is currently up for auction with all the proceeds going to colon cancer research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. The bidding goes until Wednesday, March 26, on eBay. For more information, visit seavees.com.
