Fred had a really long, scary post a few years ago about his getting banged (SERIOUSLY banged) paddling out at Mark. Worth revisiting. Great guy, great artist. Sorry to hear this. Much too young. I used to read the arrest reports to keep up with some of my old SHS surfing buddies. Now, I read the obits. Too many familiar names, too many long time friends.

I was with Fred when he banged his head. It was at Pet Den. He went head first into the reef and came up dizzy. I helped him paddle in. Probably had a concussion and he had a big shiner on his forehead.
