Paddle Out for a Fallen Comrade

On Sunday, August 23 at 10:00 a.m., there will be a paddle out for body surfer Monte Valentin at Bay Street in Santa Monica. Valentin died after being thrown into the rocks while body surfing The Wedge on July 24 during the last big south swell. The Black Surfing Association invites one and all to come to the beach and celebrate the life of this daring waterman.

Tip of the hood to Monte, from the Cold North.

Thanks for the video. RIP Monte Valentin. His mom's recounting of her sons last day and his genuine love being in the ocean is a strong sendoff. SB Mike
