I would never vote for the guy but shhhhsshee
I met him early when he was with his family supported his son, Ethan, racing motocross out at escape country, always keen to say hi and keep a low profile
Next time was when we had our cruising sailboat next to him on battleship row, crew was cool and if he was ever around would always say to "say hi and grab a beverage" when we wanted
was a great customer at both Woodys and the Ritz, easy to talk to and a OK tipper. Always willing to buy a round.
The Hobie gig at SNA was setup by the Surfing Heritage Foundation, at least I think so. Another worthy cause
