Paul Holmes
Paul Holmes grew up on the Atlantic seacoast of England and became fascinated with surfing at 13 years old. Some 10 years later, he moved to Australia where he became editor of Tracks surfing magazine. In 1981 he came to California to become editor of Surfer Magazine. During the next eight-plus years, he oversaw 100 issues of the monthly magazine, co-produced the groundbreaking Surfer television series for ESPN, and launched the radical and futuristic spin-off magazine Beach Culture. Holmes subsequently worked as head of marketing for several surfwear brands, but ultimately returned to freelance surf journalism, mostly for Longboard Magazine, where he used his diverse experience and insight to chronicle the lives of some 30-plus pioneers in the sport. Holmes has written three historical books: Dale Velzy is Hawk (2006), Bing Surfboards: 50 Years of Craftsmanship and Innovation (2008), and Hobie Master of Water, Wind and Waves (2013), a biography of Hobie Alter, a legend for his surfboard company, catamarans, and boats.
