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!”
