Colin McCulloch - A True Legend - r.i.p.

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

My reaction at seeing the thread: Heart sinking feeling and a big exhalation of "Oh No"... Very sad. Condolences to family and friends.

Likewise I never met Colin but knew of his reputation as one of the industry leaders in board design and all round good guy. I add my condolences and thoughts to his family and friends.

Oh my God... I can't believe that Colin is no longer with us... I lusted after an LCB board since I started k'surfing and remember seeing one of the boards that he designed for the (very) young Mr Hadlow.

Ever since then I wanted one and finally managed to get him to build one for me after lots of long chats over the 'phone. It still features on his website and I really love this board.

R.I.P Colin - you'll be really missed as one of the true talents in this sport.

p.s. Tony - can we not start up a tribute to Colin... maybe a gallery of photos from everyone who bought an LCB?

the last time i saw him he was in a bad way, sat in his garden in his wheel chair in the sunshine, with the same wit and humor that he always had. the same cheeky smile and ear for a bit of gossip.

seeing him out surfing at Gwitian 8 weeks after his operation was a real eye opener as to what the human spirit can achieve when you put your mind to it. so sad that it didnt come off.

those two images are how i will remember him, defiant and a fighter right to the end.

my thoughts are with Caroline and the children.
