A pioneer and a legend.  The surfing and skateboarding community owe him a debt of gratitude.

Condolences to Debbie and family.

Wow....My first "real" skateboard in 1978 (I think) was a 29" G&S Fibreflex with Bennett AdTracs and Chris Yandal "Bowl Rolls". 

RIP

My first read deck was a flat G&S Fiberflex with Bennetts and RR4s. Changed my life. Thanks Larry.

That was one of my early boards too. Still have my Pineapple Street Cruiser. Thanks to Larry and the other pioneers who did the work that we have enjoyed so much.

Good article. Don't see many of the surfboards anymore, glad I have one of the original skateboards.
