As members of the Zephyr Surf Team during the 70s, Ricky Tavarez and myself, Jimmy Tavarez were invited to the Los Angeles Premier of Dogtown and Z-Boys. My Fathers surf films (Don Behrns, who shot POP surf footage of Jeff Ho and others) were used in the Dogtown and Z-Boys film. Many a night, I would take the POP surf films and show them at friends houses, the Bay St. house and at Roz Cramers lunch hour surf movie fests at Venice High School. Those were the days! (Other members of our family in attendance included Richard and Steven Tavarez, Andrea Tavarez, Angie Dorame Behrns and Stacey Turnure).
