When I first went to Rincon , PuertoRico in 1971 I first heard of TommyLewis. I went to a bar at Maria's surfbreak for lunch and he was legend then.He could surf unreal in big waves.Peopletalked about him like he was some sort real Indiana Jones of the surfing world,somebody you really knew was enjoyinghis life.Years later I meet him at Cardiff Reef and told him about that .The Creator above really wants us to enjoy this great creation. Tommy Lewisdid insuch a natural way.
I also lived in Puntas / Rincon from 1969 - thru 1972 and remember Tommy Lewis from those days also..An excellent board builder my friend got one at the time and it was so far ahead of it's time in board theory and design. Tommy was an amazing surfer and waterman..It's a little late on my post here but my condolences and thoughts go to all his family and friends..Aloha
Met Tommy in Barbados 1971, he repaired my G&S twin fin, and even stayed at my rented bungalow for 2 nights, at Bathsheba break point, saw how amazing his surfing was, zig zaging on his way to the bottom, then making a tight turn, almost arriving at the same point of take off, awesome. Saw him again next year again in Barbados, living on yoga / meditation in a shack, he had ran out of cash, a friend of mine bought him a board to help him out economically. To bad wasn't able to see him again while living in California. Just last night found out about his departure. Have fun surfing the outer Celestial Galaxis Tommy.
