    back in the day I can remember seeing Rabbit, chappy and kong on those Hot Stuff boards with those sexy deep channel bottoms…oh my.
    Know nothing about the guy, but he was surf stoked into his 60’s and how cool is that!

    Al was a dear, kind, caring friend to me at ‘The Mount’ in the 70s. I loved him.

    Another legend who left us too early. I was obsessed with those channel bottom boards in the late 80’s. Insane sessions on his boards that I will never forget at an infamous point in Northern Baja. He will be missed.
