Sad to hear the news about you leaving the planet.

My father Ron Wall back in the 70's licensed the Morey Boogie Board for the Australian market, Dad & Tom were very similar souls indeed. I remember manufacturing the early Boogies in out boatshed on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and how Dad used to keep the makeshift production-line churning. I also will never forget Dad taking me to see Tom in Oceanside in 1978.

Another memory was when Tom visited us in Sydney with Hall of Famer Mike Doyle and i had the pleasure of surfing with them both at Queenscliff Beach.

Dad, Mike & now Tom all passed over within a few years of each other and I am sure are telling stories and still inventing things together.

I've been enjoying the SoCal surf on a Morey board since my youth in the late 1970s. Now in my fifties, I've introduced my twelve year old son to the joys of the boogie board this past summer. Tom's creation may not have made him rich, but has done something far more enduring. Sharing a love of the waves in such a timeless, classic way has brought joy to so many. He has enriched the lives of generations of families, and his creation will surely do so for many more. Thank you, Tom. I didn't know you, but you gave a gift to all of us!

Morey Boogies were the talk of the world's surf beaches as the 70s broke into the 80s. First time I saw 360s was hot Boogie riders. Tom added a new dimension to wave life, and gained more acceptance for surfers not on boards out the back.
