Bill Andrews (bornAugust 18, 1944 ), is a surfer documentary photographer and archivist.
Andrews surfed his first wave in 1957 at La Jolla Shores. He joined the line-up at Windansea Beach in the early sixties and claims have been made that he was one of the first to discover and surf the world class waves at Black's Beach,
<Bill Andrews checking in here - a couple of things: 1. I was part of a group of Shores and WindanSea surfers who started going to Black's in the late fifties 2. I would LOVE to know the names of "many older local surfers who had surfed it earlier" 3. I'm sure Black's was surfed before we did - just do not know who they were, and I'll guarantee that they did not surf it continuously>
despite the fact that many older local surfers had surfed it earlier. In July 1965 his surfing skills won him the cover of Surfer magazine, Vol. 6 No. 3.
<Besides Peter Lusik, Don Wroncy, John Light, Joe Trotter [LuRonLiTrots] who surfed it the day before we did Bill Andrews, Bill Ogelsby, Mickey Gordon, Tom Barber (AnOScoopsNobs)>
Andrews has been cited in numerous articles and videos on surf history including "Welcome to Windansea" by Chris Ahrens, "The Strange Disappearance of Ron Stoner" by Matt Warshaw, "Photo / Stoner" by Matt Warshaw  and Ty Ponder's "Sea Level Pressure" 
In recent years, Bill Andrews has become one of the major archivists of modern surf culture with his eclectic online chronicle A Day with BA.
