Legendary waterman and true ambassador of surfing passed away yesterday (October 22nd) at age 68. Donald Takayama was not only a tremendously gifted surfer, but also an exceptionally talented shaper.

There is only one life to live and if I had to live it all over again – I would do it all the same way.

Our sincerest condolences go out to the family, friends and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Donald.

Aloha my friend.
