RIP.... Will Warner

A life was lost last night in a tragic car accident . A person who was just discovering what his life was to be .. A waterman , being on the water learning life's lessons thru the eyes of Surfer, Sailor Skater, new boat owner, with grand dreams of cruising life's oceans obtaining experience one journey at a time.

We all lost someone special yesterday that his touch will live in our hearts forever..

Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife.
The first question was, "Did you bring joy?"
The second was, "Did you find joy?"

........ Will not only brought joy to everyone he touched but he lived his life seeking joy. His discovery led him to the water where he was becomming that of a watermen. ............ """Being on the water eases my life's worries and allows me to be me. This is what I'm supposed to do.. """ A quote from Will last summer while we were Paddleboarding... Glen B.

....I know Will's journey continues......

With heartfelt sympathy and understanding thoughts in this time of sadness to the Warner faimily and their friends , H20 Sports family,the huge Surf and Skate community of Hilton Head and all those who have been touched by Will.

................SHRED IN PEACE............... ( S.G. Fuel)

May heaven be full of 6 ft barrels and endless surfs.. cause' I know what you wanted..

MAHALO my friend.... Atlantic Paddle Surfing

Spirit wave in the sound

Catching the four-thirty 'Spirit of Harbour Town' ferry wave as it enters pier. Waves are created as the boat comes off plane and displaces water sending a small wake towards the outer sides of the pier. Today I was lucky to have all the conditions right for the small SUP ride.

Waves Finally ...YEAAAA.!....

We were blessed with some thigh/waist high waves from a week long easterly wind fetch. Some sets were in the waist high in the light onshore waves. Its been 3-4 weeks with out any real waves. I blocked out a couple trips so I can get in the water today. A much needed cleansing of my soul from many many lessons.. Paddled out on S. Forest beach with Pat Burrell and met Mike Cavan visiting from Amelia Island, Florida. We all shared some fun waves and was a great way to spend a couple hours in the mid-day sun..
