A cold water surf pioneer passed away today. The first time I ever surfed was at 5am in front of his house on a Thursday. There was no one in the water but 12 of us 16 year old campers and Jack O'Neill. My friend totally dropped in on him by accident. It was a good start to the last 21 years of surfing.
6 children, 10 grand children, 11 great grand children. And my Grandma Matsumura still likes enjoying Hilo's best shave ice once in a while @wilsonsbythebay
