  1. I’m not sure of the surf conditions on that day. But I do know that at times the waves can be very aggressive and pound the shoreline heavily. And there’s often a nasty under tow. You have to be a strong swimmer in that area.

  2. A young man with a promising future. A basket ball player and all round helpful individual. We will miss that lovely smile and your singing. You were loved.
