A Beautiful Son…

7 Sep

Last Sunday, I was unfortunate to have to say goodbye to one of my closest friends ever.  Carlos Montejo, who died suddenly last week of a stroke.  His friends, or shall I say us, his family in the small surf community of Newport Beach CA were devastated.

We sent him off with a bang…  A beautiful memorial.  True surf style.

Carlos was a hero to many and an inspiration to all who that he had touched.

Please take a minute to watch a beautiful tribute video that friends put together in Carlito’s Memory.

I love you LBL… You will forever be in my heart… Rest peacefully old friend.

    I sit here in Florida in complete shock. Carlos was on my mind all day and I did a facebook search for him to find that he had passed to recently. I worked with Carlos at Tropical Surf Shop in Coconut Grove for a couple of years and he taught me (with all of the patience in the world) to surf and build a skateboard. I am so saddened by this event. I thought he was going to be around forever mesmerizing other unsuspecting young women with his salt water eyes. I am send all of you my condolences and love. I am sorry 😦
