Sherm Moments

Sherm: This is Sunny Garcia at Sunset Beach, I think in 2000, right before he became World Champion. I just saw him riding this little tricycle up and down the beach walk at the Sunset contest and just went, "Whoa — this is a moment." [Laughs] I'm pretty proud of that, and that was a cool one too because he's a motorcycle guy, but he just looks like he's a little kid, and it ended up running in SURFING magazine as a full page. And at that point it was unheard of to run a lifestyle photo that big. I'm a big Sunny fan. I like Sunny a lot; he's a legend and a good guy.
