CRY HAVOC! UNLEASH THE WAR PIGS! ....AMERICA! Who's On Your Six?
His name is Doug Augustson, not Augustine, he is my friend and died in a Motor cycle accident June 12 2009. We love and miss you bro. S/F
We haven't forgotten you Doc! Semper Fidelis.
I worked with Doug at the westside ymca. he would always pick me up for dawn patrol even though Im a boogieboarder. At this time in my life i had many bad influences and shady friends. Doug was not one of them. He had this natural energy and oomph for everything he did. I moved from la many years ago and now am back in cali on the central coast. 3 months ago i began bodyboarding again. I always thought i would find doug again and he would come up here and catch some waves with me and my partner. sadly today I found he has passed and i wont see him again in this lifetime. I never can recall Doug ever making fun of me . once he hinted knowing I was gay and said it didnt matter to him. he always had sandals on! and alot of times at work he had to borrow shoes so we could battle at racketball. ( he had a wild swing watch out for your head!!) I would watch the pool @ the y many times for him as he took a break :P Doug was the only dude i know that smoked more than I did! On the water he was fearless and would charge anything and pop up so fast over and over on wave after wave. He showed me how to take waves and told me to pee in my wetsuit. My heart goes out to his family and friends. get at me if you want... firstname.lastname@example.org Doug... I miss you.....every time I go out to surf I think of you and how you took me to get my first wetsuit.. you were a kind, giving, fun and exciting friend.I guess I will see you at the west heavenly swell one day . peace and love. your friend Greg
