Unhappy Rick, Did you know ? ? ?

Hey Rick,
Did you know,
That Steve Schafer took the two pictures of me, (Doug Smith), that you used in this story, earlier that year, at a place called Hermans Bay which is located Mid Hutchinson Island, Florida, just south of the FP&L Nuclear Power Plant on the Atlantic side in a 20~30 mph West Southwest straight off shore wind. It is a very narrow, one mile or so strip on the island that was almost striped clean of trees and their leaves by the 2004 Hurricane Season. No one had ever tried kiteboarding there because it breaks some kiteboarding safety rules, but we had been thinking about the Flat Water / Clean Wave Possibilities and it turned out to be a Great Idea and Fun Photo Shoot as we took turns on and off the water. The sad thing is I never got to see what we took of him there that day !
Great Memories ! ! !
He will be missed greatly by all who knew him !
