Last year the museum received this message on our Facebook page:

Hi guys, I wanted to send this pic to whomever may be interested….we just left Cocoa Beach this morning after a week vacation. My dad (60) bought this board there 40 years ago and brought it back down with us. My 8 yr old son surfed on it and did pretty good for his first time! (The boy in the pics is my nephew.) I thought maybe someone there would be interested in seeing these since it was made by Happiness Surfboards and I didn’t see any from that company in the museum. It was shaped by Pat O’Hare. I tried getting my dad to look up Mr. O’Hare to see if he’d sign it but he didn’t want to bother him. lol I wish he would have brought it in to show someone earlier in the week but time got away from us. We had a great week and enjoyed the museum! Thanks, Marchelle Mosley
Pat was excited to see one of his early shapes appear after so many years and he enjoyed hearing the story behind it. For Mark it was the chance to revive a memory that had meant so much to him and pass it down to his grandson Colton. Hopefully the Creviston Family will continue to visit us, and Cocoa Beach will see the next generation of Crevistons share their family tradition through the joy of surfing.
