Vec's good friend Joe McGovern past away from a surfing accident a few weeks back. Joe is one of those guys we all should strive to be like. Not only was he a great photographer getting pics of everyone to share with the surfer but he was the guy you wanted to see in the lineup. He was probably one of the nicest guys you would ever meet in the water in NE. This guy will not only live on through his daughters and grandchildren but through every New England surfer that new Joe. His big heart will shine forever in our lineups.
