Phil Jarratt well known author / writer and surf mag editor had a few tales to share and probing questions to put to Joe. There were many well known faces there and Joe's life has certainly touched a lot of people. I am not great on surf history myself. But it is great to be in a room filled with people who were part of these great stories and hear them first hand.
