Made in USA - Japanese Magazine Article

While Jon LaLanne was working at Zuma Jay's in Malibu in the early 80's a Japanese magazine did an article on him as a typical California pro surfer. Little did they know Jon was anything but typical. Jon is a huge Japan fan and thinks they are the master race. The Japanese get little credit for their dignity, innovation, and athletic ability. He thinks there are some amazing unknown Japanese shapers and surfers out there waiting to be discovered and can't wait to meet them. Jon's first 2 jobs were ding repair and Sushi bar waiter at the once world renowned Something's Fishy in Malibu.
