Tragic news from San Clemente this morning, with the passing of Woody - head of Security at the ASP/WSL.
Many people may not know him by name, but everyone who's watched a single heat of live competition in the last decade or two would have seen his goateed face with black wrap-around sunnies accompanying heat winners from the surf to the competitors area.
I only met him a couple of times in person but he was a nice bloke, always with a friendly smile.
what happened to him?
Apparently he took his life in his hotel room.
Always sad news to hear of something like this.
Isn't today RU OK day?
Yes, today is RU Ok day. Suggest, we should say 'R U Ok' anytime. It's easy and it certainly helps.
Ah damn. RIP.
