SEA GIRT, NJ – Is Emma Spreckels the mysterious girl from Sandwich Island, the “Gay Queen of the Waves,” who embarked on a surfing expedition in Asbury Park in 1888, possibly the first of its kind on the East Coast?

After four years of research, Sea Girt author Vincent Dicks believes he’s found the likely surfer, and she’s the subject of his new novel, “Forsaken Kings: Emma Spreckel’s The Surfer of Asbury Park.”
