I remember moving out to Pacific Beach in 1999 from Wisconsin. I worked my ass off waiting tables and finishing up college. Living on the boardwalk in Mission and Pacific Beach ( San Diego). SLOMO would cruise past our party pad on the beach a dozen times a day…You can tell this guy has a sense of calm and peace within.

Disillusioned with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to Pacific Beach. There, he undergoes a radical transformation into SLOMO, trading his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.
