"Which posters to alt.surfing have you met, surfed, or tripped with, where and when?"

I've met: (all explantions below)
M@rk
John Kim
Dee Dee
Kevin

I've surfed with:
Todd
John (jw) Webster

I've traveled with:
Craig Kemnitz

M@rk:  I met M@rk when his band played at the Ocean Mist in Rhode Island.  I posted the story at the time.  "It was a dark and chilly night...for it is in (pseudo-semi-secret spot) that our story takes place."

John Kim:  He posted to AS asking about The Surf Report, IIRC.  We emailed back and forth a few times and he stopped by my place and borrowed my collection.

Todd:  Craig and I met and surfed Narragansett Town Beach with (New England) Todd in early March 2000.  [see story at Craig's site.]  Todd brought three boards, and for the sake of all, I hope he never loses them off the roof of his car, 'cuz that's a WHOLE LOTTA FOAM.  I won't say that is the smallest wave I ever "rode," but that's close.  I took off switchfoot (I'm in the top photo of the bunch).  I was so restricted by Todd's 5/4 over my 2/1 spring.  "Left foot forward?  Whatever."  Others were surfing that day in the tinies.  [also see pics from Craig's page here.]

John (jw) Webster:  We met up at a kinda secret spot with steady 30 mph sideshores--maybe the windiest day I've ever surfed.  It was the day off the local beach cleanup.  I felt kind of badly for not helping, but I thanked the schoolgirls as I passed them. The squid lid came in handy with that much 
wind.  We each caught and rode at least one raggedy-ass wave.  I have a picture of John taking off, but it is still in the camera.  We'll see how it turns out.  I posted a report at the time.

Dee Dee:  Although I met her once before, we hit a number of beaches as the 2000 Isaac swell came in.  I surfed Point Judith and Scarborough Beach, but she stayed on the beach.  Technically, we haven't surfed together, but I've surfed with her as a witness.  I posted a report at the time.

Craig Kemnitz:  We spent a couple days together in March 2000.  We both surfed the tinies at Town Beach, 'gansett.  We checked out a number of beaches.  Strange that my first AS points would come from meeting another GL surfer, but Craig probably has everybody beaten.  He came down from Boston, and I was on Spring Break from Florida.  [see story at Craig's site.]

Kevin:  There was a one time (that I know of) poster (Kevin) from Gainesville, FL. He was looking for advice on buying a board and had a 60s beater longboard.  I went over to his apt., saw his board, talked about surfing and sold him a book by Nat Young on learning to surf.  I asked for $3, but he gave me $5.  He had a wife (I guess they were getting back together) and kids, so finding a decent budget-priced board was not going to be an easy thing.  His mom had a sentimental attachment to the log, so getting "any" value out of it wasn't an option for him.
