A Wave for Jocko.

Our paddling comrade, John Taylor, left us behind on Sunday.  He was committed to time in the ocean and surfing, but even from a distance,  you could tell Jocko was a jolly and congenial soul.  I met him in the water, of course.  He paddled over and struck up a conversation, with ease and his boyish charm,  like he’d always lived there.

    Really, really sad news. Didn’t know Jocko well, but he was the first local I ever talked to in Port A, and even though I was a rank beginner from Austin he was always giving me advice, calling me into waves, etc. Surfing HCP will not be the same.
