A paddle out will be held at Bird Rock, on Thursday (Feb 2) at 1pm, for Shaun who passed last week.
I would like to remember Shaun charging spots like the 'Pop and 2 Mile at any size with incredible poise and grace.
RIP and love to the family.
(Sorry everyone, I've re-posted this cos the first one got spammed.)
Still remember Him winning Trials and then making the Semi's at Bells in the 90's .
Surely missed , throughout Vicco . RIP .
What happened to Shaun? How did he die? Its really sad to hear that. The guy ripped!
I believe it was at his own hands, Yorkessurfer. He apparently went through a long period of depression prior to his death.
yes yorkey, he had been quite ill for sometime.
Very sad, may he be at peace now.
My heart goes out to the family, great people.
Very sad to hear. Gees, that's such a difficult situation for all concerned. All the best for the paddle out tomorrow. And, for what it's worth coming from a name on a website - best wishes to his loved ones.
Tragic news to hear of Shaun's passing. I remember him coming over to SA for one of the small pro-junior comps in the early 90's (held at Middleton, if I recall correctly), where he absolutely tore the bag.
Here's a nice tribute clip.

Deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
Hope he gets a wonderful memorial tomorrow.
