Meeting Robert August at January Surf Expo 2017

The only thing better than meeting one of your idols is meeting them for second time! Robert August was one of the two Surfers featured in the Surf Classic Endless Summer. I met Robert the first time a few years ago at the Surf Expo and he is so willing to talk and chat. Very funny man too! Thanks to Joe Nuzzo from Suncoast SurfShop in Treasure Island for not only introducing me again this year but also for ordering me my first longboard (custom). It was a model called "What I Ride" signed on the bottom near the Stringer by the man, Robert August himself. How cool! By the way, the State of Florida has a license plate choice called "Endless Summer". When I met Robert the first time, he told me he signed one. I actually spotted it ... that is awesome. Hope you all have a chance to meet one of your idols someday soon.
