Paddle-Out for Ray Andreola (1956-2008): It is with the greatest sadness that we must announce the untimely passing of our loyal reader and friend Ray Andreola. Although in Hawaii, Ray checked this website weekly, until he passed from liver cancer last week. To honor a fellow brother, other surfers conducted at “paddle out” at 7:30 Wednesday July 30th. A paddle out is a ritual where Raymond’s surfer brother gather around, while real brother Lou Andreola spread Ray’s ashes in his beloved surf. Many attended the touching occasion, and it was commented about on the Boardwalk public address ceremony as well.
