I wish Rod a happy birthday. Rod has offered a good historical account of our early days of collaboration in his paper, “The Birth and Early Days of Parameterized Complexity” [D12]. One of the themes of our life-long collaboration has been a shared passion for surfing, and many of our best ideas were hammered out on surf trips. This contribution is best viewed as a gloss on that earlier account by Rod, taking as an organizing skeleton, our various surf trips and what we were thinking about, with a particular emphasis on open problems and horizons that remain, and some reflections on the formation of our research community.
