"Tamayo Perry was a lifeguard loved by all, famous on the North Coast, a professional surfer known around the world," commented Kurt Lager, acting head of Ocean Safety.

In his biography, Perry previously wrote that he had already been on the verge of death: "A few years ago, while surfing in a very large paddleboard, I was involved in a strange accident that turned into a near-death experience. The incident happened due to someone's lack of awareness. The lessons I learned from this event inspired my goal to instill proper surfing etiquette and safety in those I teach."
