Harry Conti Hanging the Banner      Jim Phillips enjoys a clean coast!


Jim Phillips founded the Gremlins Society in 1960 and then went on to start the Pleasure Point Surfing Association. Harry Conti was a Westside Raider. Harry and Jimmy were surfing buddies and environmental activists before it was cool! 

In 1980 Westside Raider Conti teamed up with Pleasure Point Surfing Association Phillips and resurrected The Pleasure Point Night Fighters (PPNF est. 1919) then went quickly and efficiently on to Pack Your Trash ©. Conti moved to Hawaii to join the Board of Save Our Seas Hawaii led by Paul Clark. SOS and Pack Your Trash spread through the Pacific. Phillips, Conti and Clark teamed up in 2022 to re-form the Gremlins Society.
