After God and my family, it’s surf. I don’t imagine me not surfing. Surf brings me smile every day.

It was my father who – after, at age 15, I had attempted unsuccessfully to drive the family car using a ‘borrowed’ key and knocked down a wall of the garage – convinced me over the telephone not to run away from home and who then came home from work not to punish me but rather to console and comfort me.

I grew up on a farm in Lexington, Oklahoma, a rural community south of Norman. My family moved to Enid, Oklahoma, in 1962, when I was a junior in high school. This cast me into a totally different environment. Enid was a company town for Champlin Petroleum, and there was an oil boom going on.
