Sad to hear, he was an icon and O'Neill is still one of the better surf brands and wetsuits out there.

He was a great guy to know in the 60's and early 70's .

Cort Gion grew up in the house he bought later from his mom at inside pleasure point .


"In 1972, he lost an eye surfing off Santa Cruz, forcing him to wear a patch. "

He was a victim of his son Pat's early surgical rubber leash . So its been said .

What early surf movie showed him rolling up and down Ocean Beach, SF in the fog, on a wind-in-the-sail three wheeler?

RIP Jack. Thanks for making is possible for thin guys like me to surf in cool/cold water.
