There’s no denying that Tom Morey  has a unique wisdom and outlook on most things in life. Long time Morey Boogie Art Director  Craig Libuse  inherited Tom’s rolodex cards. He wrote down things about running the business and filed them. New employees were asked to read them as an introduction to the company. He has some interesting insights into running a company.  Below is a photo of the actual rolodex cards.

July 9, 1971, Tom took his latest invention of a prone riding surfcraft down to Honols, Kona Hawaii. The board is 54 inches long shaped from a broken surfboard blank and covered in newspaper. After catching a few waves prone he realises he has something special. “This is going to be a device that everyone will have” he thinks to himself. This was the start of the bodyboard revolution. Below Tom and the first bodyboard.
