I've met: (all explantions below)
I've surfed with:
I've traveled with:
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
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.
