Fred Salmon grew up on Palm Beach County beaches. In the 1960s, his family would congregate around a campfire and spend the entire weekend on the shores of Singer Island.”Families all over the neighborhood did that,” Salmon said. It was the beginning of his lifelong passion for the surf.When Hurricane Betsy ran the ship Amaryllis aground in 1965, the area became “quite a mecca for surfers,” he said. The ship created a break in the waves and the best conditions in the region. Beach Boys’ tunes dominated the Top 40 and a dozen surfing clubs sprung up with members of all abilities.
