Sean Doherty writes in the June 2013 issue (339) of Surfing World magazine :
I first met pete bowes a few years back on the internet, in a slaughterhouse. It was the killing floor with the best ocean views on the North Coast, and pete was busy at the time contemplating the meaning of life while chronicling the final minutes of an endless slew of unfortunate beasties.
They were tough yards for this hemophobic, with the talk of ‘charnal dust’ and stuck pigs
I tell him we’d like to run a few of his stories in the magazine. He replies, ‘We’ll see. Get your people to speak to mine.’
