The one that was up there of Mike was a double OH+ takeoff.

Pollack just told me the other photo is Fletcher Sharpe and from the description above sounds like the shot of him from the "I love Cocoa Beach" article.

The one of Fletcher looked almost B&W with him compressed at the bottom, Mike was dropping in about 1/3 the way down.

The Assassination of First Peak -- now that was a real painful event to experience. When it happened, I was living in Brazil. I remember a buddy of mine messaging me about the petition to save First Peak. At the time, I was not planning on moving back to Florida and was enjoying lots of surfing, but I didn't hesitate in signing the petition. Unfortunately, the signatures were not enough to stop the slaughter.

I visited the inlet over this weekend and caught myself shedding a tear. My wife asked me what happened and I gave her and my son the scoop. Some wonderful memories came to mind... Early 90's driving from Miami with my surf buddies -- "The Dade County Troublemakers". Yeah we had our share of encounters with the law, none which were significant, just the usual "you shouldn't be playing guitar at this time at night", "you guys are far from home, what are you doing here?", "what type of cigarette are you guys smoking? (artists tobacco)...

Plenty of nights we slept in a tent, in our cars, or even on the sand, to wake up to beautiful A-frame waves and impeccable rights bouncing off the jetty. Those were the carefree days... I remember seeing the Salters, Hobgoods, Cory Lopez, along with a whole bunch of shredding machine groms. Those were the days...
