Surfing when he was 90 and dead at 96, he certainly got the most out of life.

The May/June 2008 issue of WoodenBoat has an article by Jim Brown titled Multihull Pioneers. It features Woody Brown, Rudy Choy, James Wharram, Arthur Piver, and Dick Newick. Nice article with some interesting photos make it worth a look.
