  • There's a reflective bio on the life of Ricky Rasmussen, legendary NY surfer, in this month's The Surfer's Journal. The piece is titled, "Unsafe At Any Speed." To say that the guy's story is fascinating would be an understatement. Just to even discuss his life, we must use a cautionary lens to portray such a fella and his tragedy, as he was onto big things early. That being said, when it comes to surf lore...whoa, that guy was a bad ass.
