Todd Commented, "GFH is the realization of a life-long dream.  I have always sought a relaxed environment of truly cool people working together to enjoy every day as a blessing and everyday out of a "real job" as a way of life.  I have been looking for a home, and I think I found it.  Surf on...this company is going to teach you to stop being so rad, kick back, take your shoes off, take the board to the top of the driveway, and just groove...hell, just groove."
