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.
the guy on the right looks like he should be saying in the most heavily russian accent "I am a 50 year old Russian surfer...from Russia..and I have come to take Kelly Slaters throne!"
Oh, and Mike wants to know what the "Duct Tape" on the deck is all about. Why not get it fixed?
Been hangin on wall and decided to take it out other day, noticed weak spot was crackin so duct taped it so I could feel were it was better and hopefully give it some support. Woulda takin it off for pic if I knew you were gonna show it to the man himself! LOL
