As surfers, we come together to mourn the loss of fellow ocean lover, Paul Walker. Already this year we have lost surfers Kirk Passmore, Buttons Kaluhiokalani, and now Paul. May they all rest in paradise.
In 2001, Paul Walker told Dark Horizons “Surfing soothes me. It’s always been a kind of Zen experience for me. The ocean is so magnificent, peaceful and awesome. The rest of the world disappears for me when I’m on a wave”.
Paul Walker was a lover of the ocean and chose to spend his free time surfing. He was very passionate about marine biology and even spent time with National Geographic tracking great white sharks off the coast of Mexico. Not only did he care deeply for the ocean, but also he cared for the well being of people all over the world. He spent his last day at a charity event for his organization, Reach Out Worldwide, that was supporting relief efforts for the devestating typhoon in the Philippines. Paul was a loving father, philanthropist, friend, actor and surfer.
Dozens of people gathered to the crash site bringing flowers, candles, photos of Paul and Roger, notes and their favorite accessories from Paul’s films.
