How Hang Ten got its name.
by Duke Boyd

Hang Ten got its name long after Doris Moore, Hang Ten co-founder and partner, and I had delivered the first batch of trunks. I recall we were talking one day in the factory about what to name the line . . . Doris asked curiously what was the equivalent in surfing to golf’s hole in one. Longboards were the mode of surfing at that time, and hanging ten, the perching of one’s toes over the nose of the surfboard along with one’s body weight for as many magic seconds as you could muster before pearling or back-peddling, was surfing’s accepted, thrill, skill and poetry. Hang Ten was our first and final choice. The surfing world snickered, as I knew it would. It was a nerd name, a kook name and it wasn’t cool. I went home to my art table and drew up a logo. Two brown foot prints slightly apart indicating hanging ten, we chose a yellow background. Sun and sand colors. The words Hang Ten were scrawled child-like as though they came off the famous wall at Malibu, where we can see such comments as “surfers rule” and “flat landers are bleep bleep.” Doris always amazed me with her open-mindedness.
