Surfed many times and places with Gamivia Duke and Tower7. Also ended up establishing lasting friendship w/Gamivia Duke. Turns out we went to uk rolex replica the same high school but he was three years ahead and "cool" so I didn't know him, but I've known the girl he married since 4th grade.
Surfed with Surfgeo, Egosurf and John Ferguson in Central Mexico.
Successfully hooked up and surfed with long time lurker (since '92 he claims!, way longer than me) and infrequent poster Jay. The University of Florida connection discovered after my "All My Boards" post was too much to ignore, so we hooked it up with Tower7 at an immensly popular Los Angeles beach break. The waves were fun, we dominated a peak on the north end of the pack and everyone got good rides. Another 'small world' type incident, we have a few friends in common, but never really crossed paths despite spending the same 4 years in the same town going to the same bars, parties and clubs. That's what a University of 50,000 lunatics is all about!
Dos Zapatos surfed and tripped with Lemmings in the PNW in August 2001. The waves sucked, and i can proove it 'cause i just got the pics back from the developer. I surfed with dave blake on that same trip when I passed thru San Francisco.
New Zealand and Huntington Beach (July/August 2002). I surfed today with TDsurf. We met up at Huntington Beach, south of the pier with former poster tower7. the waves were fun, but inconsistent. TD got some good ones, including a really good freefall to faceplant on a nice set wave.

NZed Surfa in Wellington New Zealand back in July. We didn't surf,
'cause it was flat and cold and I just got off a 13 hr plane ride through
