Close Encounters: Steve "Da Hulk" Hull
"Which posters to alt.surfing have you
met/surfed/tripped with, where and when?"
I have met but not surfed with:
I have "surfed" with:
- Tom Tweed:
Tom and I hooked up for dinner when I was in San Diego for a
- Andrew Locke (TolaSurfer):
Andrew and I met at a BBQ he hosted and we have met many times
since for business. Still hoping to get a session in soon.
- Dyer Crouch (Dyer):
Met at Andrews BBQ.
Haven't taken a trip with an AS'er yet.
- Gioni Pasquinelli (G):
Gioni and I have met several times and surfed a couple of times
together. I confess I've seen him ride a lot more waves than he's
seen me ride. G joined Tim and Rick for Dinner at my place last
- Dave Francis
Dave and I met a couple of times and surfed with G at
Sharks once. G took a picture of me noseriding Dave's board.
- Mike Kopp (MoodyKopp):
Mike and I have passed quietly in the lineup at
the Hook and Sharks a couple of times.
- Tim Maddux:
Tim came up last October to surf. We met several times and
surfed briefly at PP once. I was going in about the time he paddled
out. Saw him get a couple of waves though. Had he and Bettye over for
- Ric Harwood:
Rick had hooked up with Tim while on his trip from
England. Rick and I surfed PP together. Rick joined
Tim and G at my place for dinner, and Rick and his companion
stayed at our place on their way north from Santa Barbara later.
I met Foon about three years ago but we surfed together a
little over a year ago when he visited Santa Cruz. Ok, I
surfed, he sponged.
I suspect there are a few Santa Cruz-Norcal folks that I have shared the
lineup with but never actually met. Don't know how many points (I
them up for ya Hulk! -tim), but I have always found my encounters to
be pleasant and stokeable.
All that totals up to
3 alt.surfers met,
6 alt.surfers surfed-with, and
0 alt.surfers tripped-with, for a total of
