If Sidebottom paddles south, you follow him. If he paddles north, you follow him. If he paddles west... well, you can't paddle very far west on this coast, but he hopped off the Slidebottom and got in his car. We'll miss him as he chases the sun cross-country, but the crew gave him an appropriate sendoff.
Thank you, Mike, for everything. For opening your home to us, for delicious breakfasts, for trustworthy and thorough swell reads, for spreading serious stoke - waves or no waves. He's left New England for now, but we're fairly certain his blood will bring him back someday.
