R.I.P. Shawn “Barney” Barron

Having grown up in the “punk” era watching the Santa Cruz crew push the limits of surfing with awe, I was very saddened to learn of the death of one it’s core members, Shawn “Barney” Barron, yesterday. Known for his wild antics both in and out of the water and for being at the vanguard of arial progression and charging Mavericks, he was an inspirational surfer. I loved his video parts growing up, mostly because of his humour and unbridled passion for life, as well as those mad wetsuits. He was an cool guy and the surfing world mourns the loss of another great surfer today.

RIP Barney Barron
