This guy was one of the more avant garde behind-the-scenes guy out there.
maybe truly the original "chandler" as most of the old timers have many tales to tell of their dealing with croteau.
state of art designer who never got the limelight like his peers but hearing Barnfield and Griffin talk about him you know he was light years ahead of whatever the current scene was.
Few realize that the tech behind Jim Richardson's Surflight designs started off as a Croteau project many years before.
That alone tells me allot
somehow when I hear the name Croteau
I envision the word "rocketship" when I think of a surfboard.
The Santa Cruz area has put out allot of design talent who don't get the press their southern peers have over the years.
