Surfer Dude Dewey Weber

Field review by the editors.

Hermosa Beach, California

The statue of Dewey Weber took 12 years for surfing artist Phil Roberts to create before it was unveiled in late 2015. It's based on a 1966 photo of Dewey doing a cutback on a wave at Hermosa Beach, an image considered iconic among surf aficionados.

Hermosa Beach considers it to be a very important statue, as it establishes its prominence among rival surf cities such as Huntington Beach and Santa Cruz. Dewey, who was also a National Yo-Yo Champion, died at age 54 in 1993.
