For a 1986 Surfing magazine profile, Sam George interviewed Dave Parmenter and also accompanied the third-year world tour pro to many of that year's contests. "With all his eccentricities," George wrote in his intro, "Dave Parmenter may be the most interesting surfer in the world." Parmenter was 24 at the time. Two years later, while still at the top of his game, he left the tour to become a full-time boardmaker.
