    Legends Never Die... Rest in Peace Eddie Solomon



    We lost our friend, brother, hero, and inspiration Eddie Solomon yesterday. He was battling cancer for the past 12 months, going through it all to survive and spend more time with the world he loved.

    On behalf of Bodyboarder, we humbly thank each and everyone of you who supported and helped Eddie throughout his cancer treatments whether it was through prayer or donations. Thanks to you, Eddie had a fighting chance against his rare yet aggressive form of cancer and gave him enough time to experience the birth of his first son and to marry the love of his life.

    For those interested in joining the many around the world who were touched by his bravery, kindness and generosity, please join us at memorial paddle outs at the following times and places:

      I had the privilege of having dinner with Eddie's parents Alexandria and Edward Sr. at the Montage in Laguna Beach the night before Eddie's passing. They were scheduled to return to Germany on Saturday and received message on Friday morning that they needed to make arrangements to leave for Germany immediately. My wife and I were in from Michigan on vacation to see Eddie and Alexandria after not having seen each other for over thirty years. The Solomon's were gracious enough to have my wife and I stay at their vacation property in Dana Point during this time. I say this because of the power of love. Eddie's impact on the world and everyone who ever knew him either directly or in my case through his parents will never be forgotten. My life has been profoundly impacted by this incredible young man. God Bless his wife, son, brothers and sister, and my dear lifelong friends Alexandria and Edward Solomon Sr.
