    Who taught you how to surf?

    Family, friend, future pro?

    This is who taught me to surf, about 17 years ago. I still remember him sending me down the line for my first time...

    and this has what to do with the question? I'm pretty sure Greg didn't give you any tips and then shove you into a wave

    The infamous and probably the most hated guy around here - Elliot Zuckerman. But it was a fun lesson and I was out there early may so we didn't get in anybody's way. Heck it was raining that day!

    In response to jimmeycraxcom, Gregg Noll is still alive and kicking. He and his son recently opened a new surf shop in California. Miki Dora passed away in 2002. Two close friends of mine surfed with both men in California and Hawaii. Who says one or both didn't teach Matt to surf?
