A - Terry Hendricks So California Kneeboard
INTERNATIONAL HYDROFOIL SOCIETY'S ALBUMS > A - Terry Hendricks So California Kneeboard

Terry Hendricks will be missed by many, especially those of us who love hydrofoils. He was one of the true 'rocket scientists', who choose to funnel his creative energies into designing, building, and testing hydrofoils. He was a good friend and one of 6 original members of our informal Southern California "Human Powered Group."

Terry Hendricks, Ph.D, for more than a decade has been searching for the perfect combination of kneeboard and hydrofoils. Although some of his original ideas are covered by his patent, many are still top secret. That is why he often tests his boards at Swami's surf beach in Encinitas, California at 4am.

Terry has the distinction of being one of the few surfers bitten by a harbor seal. When asked why such a docile animal would bite, Terry replied, "They get excited when stepped on in the dark."

Terry passed away peacefully june 13, 2013, in his home town of Encinitas, California.

Here is his death announcement, rather hard to read and says only that he died peacefully:
Here is a Youtube memorial to Terry
