It's still so hard to accept. I'd been lucky enough to spend the last few months with Joe and Jordan here on the Gold Coast. Joe and I connected pretty much straight away, which doesn't happen often for me. I've had alotta fun drinking and going out with him, and racked up a few hours in the water with him surfing some good waves and some some not so good waves. Joe charged in the water and out of it, he was a caring, supportive and always there for you type of friend. Not too mention one funny bastard aswell. You're a good friend mate and I'll always remember you. I'm sure one day we'll meet again and have a beer and a laugh at some of the crazy stuff we got up to. I know you're in a place that will have the longest grinding barrel we could ever imagine, beer on tap and alot of scenery of the bird variety, the ones without feathers...Peace Man.
