Contest Day - July 16th 1998
Greg was to call me at 5:30 AM and wake me up. Instead, I was up at 5:00 and ready to go by 5:45. So... I went next door and found Greg and a house full of "Surf Rats" asleep on couches, floors and one guy curled up in the Kitchen between the stove and refrigerator. I kicked Greg in the head and yelled "Off Your Butts and On Your Feet".  We pulled into the contest area with about one minute to spare.

She's a known quantity in the surfing world and is beautiful too.)
