Obviously. The last connection I saw him with was Global Surf Industries when they came through as sponsors of the OCM Surfrider longboard Legends contest in June of 2008. He was at the Party with SRF president Shelly Dawson at the pre-contest party.
Probably the 2nd most famous surfer from Fla in the 1970's. If youre wondering, Jeff Crawford is 1. They were amazing if you ever saw either in the water. Crawford was as good as anyone at time. I saw them both at Sebastion on good days. MT made boards, had his own brand & shop called MTB for a while. Really nice shop in downtown Cocoa Beach. Had the best surfing wall mural I have ever seen (gone now). I ran across him selling boards at Ron-Jons a few years ago. I recognized him & we had a good converstaion about the old days. Ron Jons has a little musuem with East Coast, Fla history if you are ever down there. Good bit about MT there.
