Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of Sean Collins, who passed away yesterday at 59. Over the past 25 years, Sean almost single-handedly changed the way we go surfing with his forecasting expertise. Hurley and the surf world at large owe so much — and probably the waves of our lives — to him. Thank you for everything, Sean. You will be missed.
2010 Hurley Pro Trestles: one of the many surf contests made possible by Sean Collins and his expert knowledge in swell forecasting. Sean predicted the best waves of the contest would arrive that final day of the waiting period. Of course, he nailed it.
