Wow, sad to hear.

I went to school with his daughters and had my first surfing experience (reality check ) while visiting him while on a trip with his oldest daughter and some friends. He set us up with some sweet boards and turned us loose on the local scene down at Stone Steps for an incredible week that I will never forget. Super cool guy...

R.I.P.
