Yeah, I'd finished my 25 year commitment to surfing by then. Lived near OceanBeachSanFrancisco and mostly surfed there, one of the big wave riders from the beginning (1966, made my first 9'7" x 19" gun). Shaped 150 boards for myself and one bud, then shaped another 250 for WiseSurfboards, the one at CabrilloSt. and GreatHighway.
Been to Oahu maybe 14 trips total, but only 6 for pure surfing. Normally only from Dec. thru April, as home is best from Nov-Jan.
Got my 50 days at Pipe, any size, and over that at Sunset. Found out I had buds living at KuilimaCondos and left my boards there, usually from 7'6" to 9'6" guns.
I was in the credits of BankWright's SurfingCalifornia, but after 15 years, got left out. I advised in over 20 spots.
