Charley grew up at 801 Hope Ave, 1 block from the beach and has been an integral part of the surfing reputation New Smyrna Beach has come to be famous for.
After graduation from NSB High School where he played football and baseball Charley went to Daytona State on a baseball scholarship and recorded 17 strike outs pitching in his first college game. We think the record still holds for the school to this day.

During all of this CB became the 1971 East Coast surfing champion and later 2 US surfing championships along with 3 professional wins.

The concession was host to many professional surfing competitions including the ‘Aloe Up’ an ASP World Tour event. Charley later opened up Inlet Charley’s Surf Shop on Flagler Ave which would become a 30 year staple that is now Rip Curl Surf Shop. He also opened CB surfboard manufacturing company in Edgewater becoming one of the largest surfboard manufacturers on the east coast building more than 20,000 surfboards distributed throughout the world.
His family history of local business in the area should also be mentioned. His parents, Patty and Boostie, owned and operated New Smyrna Chrysler Plymouth that was established in 1948 in downtown NSB and was eventually sold in 1988. Charley’s grand parents helped establish the town of Oak Hill and owned and operated Baldwin’s Grocery and Hardware in Oak Hill in the 1930’s.
Charley has 2 daughters, Lindsey (also an agent for Royalty Realty) and Marcie, and one grand baby Jordie Ann. His daughters became established surfers with both winning 2 East Coast Championships and 2 US Championships with Lindsey going on to enjoy 3 years on the ASP Pro Tour traveling the world. He is also very proud of the both graduating from University of North Florida in Jacksonville.
