Robert Megaro, Charlie, Thank You. For shaping my very first short board over at the carriage house in Rumson. And for all the contributions you and the other "elder statesmen" made to art and science and sport of Surfing. Proud member of the KSA, Bud Megaro.
Bill Minder & Charlie got me doing dings at the MB Shop and Charlie infused me with the fire and passion for shaping in the horse stalls at the Brennan's carriage house in Rumson, circa 1966-67. It was a certainly a heady time for Us All
Saw Charlie punch out a guard at Tradewinds one day when the guard tried taking his board. As Charlie swam in I advised the guy to let it be, but being a karate expert he didn’t listen. Poor guy didn’t see it coming
I haven't heard the name Chuck Kunes in forever! Loved that guy.
Thank you, Charlie, for your passion for surfing. You are powerful and lead the sub-culture evolution of surfers here. Your choice to embrace wave riding was outside the box for your peer group. You created a life style that had no presence here. Thank you for revealing that you still have the passion for the free ride nature provides for our pursuit. You are humble but not forgotten.
