Examples of my Grandma St Pierre’s classic funky homemade greeting cards. She passed away this week so now she is hanging with my Grandfather again in some swanky heavenly club while Benny Goodman rocks the joint.
Sad news from the Bonzer Front Blog:
Jack was the first to take on the Bonzer as a kneeboard in the early 70’s, and boy did he rip! It was his 5′11″ to 6′0″ kneeboards that we tried as stand up boards which led to the Bumblebee. There is no question in my mind that Jack was one of the best all time kneeboarders ever. He surfed the wave.
Peace to his family and friends.
Underground surfer/shaper/airbrusher/skater and punkrocker Ben Shipman (pictured center with his bandmates) passed away last week after battling cancer off and on for 15 years. Ride a wave for Shipman next time you go surfing.
