We got some news from Ralph Fatello the worlds first surf punk. First of all he's got some new surf videos coming out which we will view and review like the others. The other news is that he is over 200 days into a year of surfing EVERY DAY. It's a fund raiser called Catch a Wave for Molly. What a year to have to keep that promise. Amazing!
Ralph also has a Rat documentary that he wants to start soon. I don't know…the mountains may wash into the sea before someone gets that done, but if anyone can Ralph can.
Check out his webpage and see how much he's got going on....www.ralphspic.com
