I responded to your questions in the Find a Pull thread.
Lance and Reid parted ways, business wise, after the shop closed. They still stay in contact every now and then. I believe Lance is doing construction or painting homes. My brother is still a firefighter and is also the Hawaii for No Fear (motocross division), Spy Optics and Nautiques. So needless to say, he stays very busy between all of that and being a family man.
I have great memories from RNR. Lance was a very good instructor and I base a lot of my coaching style around his. I learned a lot from him.
My brother was definitely inspirational to guys who were built bigger. I watch old videos of him and I'm still impressed with how big he went. I remember when he was doing R&D for Hyperlite boards and his job would be to see how hard he could push those boards. Man, I saw him eat some serious sh.. off double ups when boards would snap on the landing.
