    Dang. I've known him since the late 90s. Same age and everything. Last time I saw him was at a mutual friend's wedding circa 2012ish? Wish I would've never sold my last of his logs in 2017. I'd love to get a new one, but it doesn't sound like its in the cards. Magic Feet.

    His surfing in the Longboard Fever / Longboard Habit/ Longboard Magic stuff was just mind blowing.

    To heck with the boards, I’d settle for my old VHS tapes.

    It is good . I believe that’s actually Daniel Graham though if my memory serves me correct. That section of the video has a session with him and Oliver Parker. The clip attached is just like an opening preview. Kevin is in the neon green jersey a few guys in to this opening preview. That contest footage (all his waves) are featured in the movie. It’s great stuff. I wish the whole movie was online somewhere.

    Gerry Lopez did the same thing.
    He thought inland would be a better place to raise kids.
    Probably a good call.

    Bend Oragon is a cool little town. Lots of diffrent things to get into depending on the season white water Kayaking, fishing, mountain biking camping and hiking in the warmer months Winter Snowboarding, skiing Snowshoeing, and back country boarding and skiing. If you become good at Telemark skiing it’s like watching a someone that has style on a longboard.

    a quiet cabin in the woods
    Recently relocated from the OR coast, bought a place 15 mins south of Bend in Sunriver....we love the area, the unlimited recreation, mountains and desert, easy enough to make a coast run or jump a flight at the local.

    if fortunate enough to get old enough, no matter how mad dog about surfing (guilty), or how hard you worked to stay in the best shape possible, eventually the paddleouts will become farther and fewer apart...so best at that point to construct a life that makes the best of the time you have left...

    Questions for bonus points:
    - What is the name of the little minx that he was with when he was high profile?
    - What was his nickname?
