On FM94/9 last Thursday, before his Satellite Party show, Perry Farrell said that he doesn't surf anymore because he lost his board. He mentioned that he might surf again if someone gave him a board.

After his hour-long set at 'Canes, a crowd of about 25 followed him to the bus. His security guards kept close. Someone shouted, "Do you remember me? It's Clay." One woman wanted to take a photo of him with her phone. Security told her, "We don't have time." Farrell was friendly, saying hi or smiling. Another guy tried to get a beer bottle signed.

When Farrell reached his bus, a guy called him over to the grass area near the boardwalk. He said he had a surfboard to give Farrell. The guy said he was up north when he heard the radio interview; he'd driven a few hours south to get here. Farrell walked over and seemed shocked. He laughed, thanked the guy a bunch of times as people snapped photos of him holding the board.

They talked surf for 15 minutes before Farrell's people said, "Okay, well...let's put the board on the bus." Farrell stood there for a photo with the guy and the board, and then his crew tried (unsuccessfully) to stow the board with the luggage.

Before the bus left, the gift-giver said, "If you decide you don't like the board, call me and give it back."
