We want to thank you, Michael Peterson, for all the inspiration and influence that you brought into the surf culture.

The Australian news:
Michael Peterson is dead after suffering a heart attack at his Coolangatta home this morning. He was 59. MP was the greatest competitive surfer of the 70s. His story is one of rockstar-like status and one that is sure to endure: A volatile parallel with drugs and a unique and beautiful approach to riding waves. He may be most famously remembered for a car chase that required 35 cop cars to stop him, but more likely that classic cutback shot – surfing’s most iconic ever.
