Catri wasn’t just the first East Coaster to ride Pipeline, he rode the place as well as any regularfooter this side of John Peck.

 

damn, that's sick - RIP Man!

When Dick opened his SatBch surfshop in 1964 I was 12 years old. I already had my first board, a Surfboards Atlantic popout. My surf buddies and I all had the surf fever.

Dick was the oldest guy we ever met or saw in person that surfed. I mean he was ancient!

He was 26.

A little south of the Jackson/A1A intersection. Now there is a real estate office and a Thai place next door.

It was in the same building where Ricky Carroll's shop was. It was the north west corner of the building. It probably wasn't any bigger than 20' by 20'.

There was a girl's surf shop in the exact spot a few years ago.

Shagg would make custom lined corduroy baggies on a sewing machine in the shop. Retail price $8.00.

Many great memories with Dick, surfing Shark Pit and the early days of 1st peak, sharing time while he shaped our boards and just hanging out with Him and Shagg at the shop. (Also with Ed Clapp)

I had the gem of an opportunity to be on the original "Team Catri" Super Grom team in the early 80's with the Slaters, Holland, Sean OHare, Troy Propper, & Randy Sanders!!  He taught us all surf & life lessons we still use today!! He was the first mentor to ever tell me, "Do as I say, not as I do!" He single handedly changed the face of surfing, comp surfing, & especially pro surfing, & he did it in the era where surfing was still hippy, stonerish in the main stream, but he had the vision to see sponsors, slaries, big purses, and a tour!! If you look at his best pupil, KS11, Id say he was a Prophet!! I Love the Man for his knowledge, friendship, brutal honest, and always approachable demeanor!! An Icon, even among other Great Men!! Da Cat !!!! GodSpeed, God Bless, and Goid On Ya Richard!! Much Love Ol'Buddy!!! #Legend #Never4gotten #DaCat

I was at a party with my brother and my dad in crystal lakes where we lived when I was about 9 or 10. Dick was there and we had a chat about surfing. he offered to take us back to his house and give us a surf history lesson, we accepted. He showed us his shaping room and shed full of old boards on which he and the likes of kelly, todd holland and others surfed on. He also gave us a tour of his house and had some pretty awesome stories, showing us trophies of past east coast surfing championships and contests he won. hard to remember every detail but it was a huge inspirational moment for me at the time as i was a grom just trying to rip and be like my heroes. RIP, thank you for your contribution to surfing as a whole and to melbourne beach

Let me guess. In your delightfully cheerful poetic style you managed to piss off the calmest guy in the world. LOL

i think slater forgot to mention him in his post about surfing for Catr back in the day, if you were on the team you would be upset too, I know I would be. Did you guys get along back when you and KS were teammates?

Kelly Slater is a lying, plagerising bastard; Pure & simple!! He wasnt there for the "Do as I say, not as I do" comment from Catri, and then posts his bullshit with my line verbatim on Instagram 2 days later, but leaves me conveniently out of the "TeamCatri" list, when I was there from jump, & way before Randy Sanders(GOD Rest His Soul)! Im lmfao, but thats the "Real Truth" kiddies!! Kelly never hward Dick say that, only Randy & I did, and I refuse to let this Surf God that I could give ball sweat about use my lines & discount me!!! Fuck You KS11 & I dare you, Sean, or Stephen to say shit to me about it!!! Plagerism is a CRIME!!!

I just read "At the Helm with Dick Catri" in the link above and learned more about him than I ever knew. I first met him in '79, and knew he was well connected in the surfing world, but not all those subtle nuiances that led to all that he became and meant to the surfing world.

A huge loss, RIP Mr. Catri.
