Prior to his death, the late Jay Moriarty is profiled as an up-and-coming teenager capable of throwing himself down the faces of really, really big waves. Thanks to the coaching he received from his mentor Rick “Frosty” Hesson, who also has supported the likes of Robert “Wingnut” Weaver and Kim Hall, Jay gained the knowledge and confidence to take care of himself in the most lethal of circumstances.
