Southwest Spirit Magazine Surfing Article

I once read an amazing article in Southwest's Spirit Magazine about a guy who takes businessmen surfing in southern California, often resulting in the businessmen quitting their jobs to become surf bums. Can anyone help me find it?

It was at least a few years ago and has completely stumped my google-fu.

I don't think the article is online but is Michael Pless the guy? Here's a pic of the magazine cover.

If (alice) has the right guy (good sleuthing!), he has a surf school website and LinkedIn page. Perhaps you could contact him and ask if he has a scan of the article.

According to the Surfing Heritage Foundation the article was in the June 2007 issue of Spirit, volume 16, issue 6, pages 104-114, and the article title is "The Saint of Seal Beach". If other avenues fail, you might try contacting them to see if they can provide you with a photocopy of the article.

I guess I should've just linked this earlier but, if we're assuming he's indeed the guy, here's a story that references that magazine article and the quitting CEOs.

Response by poster: Amazing, that is him! Thanks so much; I'm sure I can hunt it down now.
