A younger Nev (L), surfing his beloved Indo and rolling the dice later in life.

Nev Hines (Freeline Indonesian Surf Adventures founder and long time board shaper) passed away in South Sumatra on May 27. Nev will be sorely missed. He was a highly respected member of the NZ, Oz and Indonesian surfing worlds and a pioneer in several areas.

There will be memorial services for him in Forster and Auckland on the 18th June.
