Surf Jet Fun early 80s

surfjetSteve Bowman, of Cocoa Beach, submitted this photo of him blasting a high speed carve in the waters off Kiwanis Island in Merritt Island. Steve worked at the Tabelings Surfing World surf shop in the early 80s. He and Mike Tabeling would travel across Florida giving demonstrations to promote sales.

Steve once had his wife, Mary, follow him on 520 Causeway and clocked him going over 50 mph with the governors removed. Steve was also the one who was responsible for terrorizing the line-up behind the Apollo building back in the day, which probably earned him some stink-eye from the locals.
