I hope he rests in peace. My prayers and thoughts to the family and friends of this surfer. I also know the tranquility of surfing and it is incomparable to any other experience.
Many of my friends have attempted suicide, and several others did die from their suicide attempts, and it is NOT that they haven't thought about the toll it takes on family members and friends. Read a psychology book. My closest friends who took their own lives were actually the ones who cared about other people TOO much, if anything, to the point that they thought prolonging their own misery would result in increased misery for everyone else in their lives. There is nothing to judge or do or say. Die a few times and then maybe you can cast a stone.
