Shark attack victim remebered at “Paddle-Out”

A “Paddle-Out” was held Sunday (10/28) to honor a California man who was killed in a tragic shark attack last week. The victim was remembered as someone who “loved the beach and surfing,” and “embraced those around him with a smile and a mellow attitude” according to a Lompoc Record article.

The surfers who participated in the memorial paddled out about 100m and formed a circle, where family members, transported by boat, briefly spoke. The surfers then each dropped a flower into the water in a sign of remembrance.
