    Happy Birthday Mark Foo

    Big wave surfer and our namesake, Mark Foo, would have been 50 today if he hadn't drowned in 1994.

    His last ride:


    Live fast, die young, leave a good-looking corpse. Cheers Mr. Foo!

    I recall seeing a documentary, I think it was called "Riding Giants". It dealt with the death of Mark Foo at Mavericks as I recall. If you have not seen it, it is a good watch.

    Yeah, there's kind of a lull in that DVD when Foo's death comes up. Otherwise, it's pretty upbeat and a lot of fun, if you have any interest in big wave surfing. Colorful folks, those surfers.

    Step Into Liquid touches on it too when it talks about the Maverick's regulars. I've heard of him many times out in Hawaii and in the surfing world.
