Big Worm
Worm (Matt Joyce) was our rep for Joel Tudor Surfboards. Worm was a super nice guy and a great surfer. Last month Worm passed away after a long battle with Cystic Fibrosis. This morning my mom sent me a link to an article in the San Diego Union-Tribune titled, "Dozens Stage Ride to Honor Memory of Friend." If you have a minute go check out the article and Big Worms CF Foundation. Rest in Peace.
