Artist's Description

Statue is of LA Lifeguard Tim Kelly, he was looked up to by the young South Bay surfers. As one of the best surfers on the Jacobs Surf Team, Tim got Jacobs, Bing, Rick, Dewey Weber and Greg Noll to donate a new surfboard to the year’s top junior lifeguard.

Sadly, Tim Kelly died in a car accident while returning from a surf trip to Trestles in the mid sixties. His death devastated the surfing world, especially in the South Bay.

The statue is on the Hermosa Beach Pier. The Los Angeles County Lifeguards are credited with building a program based on the ideals of Time Kelly, a man who is still remembered over 40 years later!
