I and my buddy Paul Day were watching very fun “Duct Tape” heats with Brian Bent (our Inspiration Exhibitor 2010-2015).
Fortunately, he found us!
When I was renting my small office in San Clemente, CA in 2007-2013,
Brian’s studio was located very close.
I saw him frequency and said hi to him.
He was always smiley.
And he has been keeping on “REAL surfer” life for long years, as I know.
He has been always hanging out at the beach!
He said “Rin, this is my first US Open to see!”
