Big Daddy K.....Andrew Kutras.......... he was incredibly helpful and supportive of my quest to become a surfer from the get go in this group. We began emailing each other and I flew out to California last November for a surf trip. He picked me up at the airport and drove me back and forth to the beach everyday. After 2 days of hanging out, I stayed with his family for the next 3 days. Really nice wife and kids, they were all great.......thanks again, Andrew.
"Are you Todd?" these were were spoken to me recently by John Webster while sitting outside waiting for waves. That was a fun experience.
"you must be Todd".....first words Doc said to me when I stopped by his shop on Cape Cod in July 1999. Took my 9 yo nephew with me then and took my 15yo surfing nephew a week later..... thanks for all the help Doc.
Rick Bates, the other "old" guy on Doc's site, was there when I met Doc, he posts here sometimes as well.
Meeting the Guidos: Yep. It's true. Here is the scenario. I left Mass at 9am.....drove 3&1/2 hrs to NY and picked up my friend and her 2 kids..drove another 1.5Hrs... So I see these 2 guys surfing and I yelled...."Mark"........and sure enough it was Mark and Homefront! They came over and we went out for a surf session. It was so cool to be surfing in New Jersey and surfing with two fellow alt.surfers. We all even got up on the same wave. Later, the third guy of team Guido was watching, pone1pesos.......
Really, you guys, thanks for hooking up with me....you are all great guys and I really look forward to surfing with all of you again.......

Todd is quoted in The Spokesman-Review (Spokane, WA) December 19, 1999, Sunday:
"Solstice-planning is also in high gear on the forum alt.surfing. One person urged others to make the solstice a moonlight ceremony of global surfing: 'It is a rare opportunity for us to all be united in the sea, in different parts of the world. What do you guys and gals think?' "
