Richard Schmidt, Pro Surfer

To Whom It may concern:

Last year I was invited by John Forse to surf in a contest he organized in Oregon.  The experience exceeded all expectations.  John did a great job of organizing the community to help run an exceptional event. Having surfed professionally for 20 years in numerous contests I would have to say this was one of the most organized and professional events I had ever experienced.

The contestants were treated with a lot of respect and the hospitality received from the community was awesome.  I would highly recommend to have John be in control of the event again.  It seems ludicrous to consider handing over the permit to someone who has not proven himself and is not part of the local community.
