There are people in this world that you cross paths with that bring with them knowledge and enlightenment. The inventor of the boogie board was one of them.
I was lucky enough to spend time with Tom Morey, who enlightened me about so many things from his taste in music to the first surfing contest.
His name and his inventions are known globally, but he does not have an ego which is something I admire. At the time, I was interviewing surfers and decided to go to the source.
