Bench at Tourmaline dedicated to surfing icon

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Pacific Beach surfing community is preparing to honor surfing legend Larry Gordon.

Gordon is a longtime surfer and co-founder of Gordon & Smith Surfboards. He's suffering from Parkinson's Disease.

The surfing community has joined together to dedicate a memorial bench for the surfing icon. The bench will be placed next to another bench honoring another highly regarded surfer, Skeeter Malcolm.

"This is just a small way that we can honor him he has done so much for the community so much for us as individuals," surfer Bill Polick said.

The bench is expected to be dedicated to Gordon later this month at the Tourmaline Canyon Surfing Park.
