An addicted surfer for almost 40 years, when he's not working with recording artists, corporate executives, writing books, or playing in one of his bands, you can probably find Sapp riding waves at Bolinas or Ocean Beach with a big smile on his face. But the biggest smiles are reserved for his wife and two children, the families rescue dog Guinevere and sometimes even the cat Matilda
