Denis Brown

Denis Brown enjoyed fishing, surfing, and swimming at Burning Palms and remembers his involvement in a dramatic surf rescue there as a teenager. He later became a commercial fisherman and found that the freedom of life for children during visits to the shack fostered independence in himself and in his own children. Denis has been involved in the battles to preserve the cabins for future generations.
