I'll bite. Bikes. That was one place he and I could connect on the same level and I appreciated talking to another guy who was around when MTBs were rickety old things. He had that crusty old guy experience but was in tune with what's going on enough that he was really digging the new style of bikes and riding. You don't see that much in riders his age and I respected it. I'm glad to have "known" him even as little as I did and will miss our interactions and especially his quips about the NS community.
I have been super bummed on this. He was so different in person than online.Pretty bummed about this all day. He was a bitter sounding guy online, but in person he was stocked and willing to talk and explain design for as long as you wanted to. He explained why I liked certain boards and that got me on to the path that I'm surfing better at 42 than I was at 24. Mahalo for that Gregg. I always wanted to order a hovercraft from him, but never did. I will cherish the 3 sets of fins I have from him.
What a bad ass, going out in a motorcycle crash at 70 something years old. Core Lord.
