That sucks. His family is Hawaiian royalty of the surf variety.

He hasn't looked healthy in awhile, not that it makes his passing any less of a bummer...especially at 55.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

He passed away a year ago. Drove himself to the hospital after the heart attack and then ultimately passed on

I believe his paddleout was Friday. In related news, Ben Aipa's is in August. R.I.P to both.

I thought this seemed familiar.

I mixed him and Sunny.
