HBO Character DescriptionEdit

The only hobby Meyer is more devoted to than surfing is rescuing Butchie Yost from himself. Viewing his hero with the protective eye museum curators reserve for Greek sculpture, Meyer fights to preserve Butchie's deteriorating existence. Whether covering his debts or defusing his enemies, Meyer continues to look after the washed-up pro long after Butchie's parents have given up. [2]
