Last week the world reeled from the tragic news of surf legend Sunny Garcia’s hospitalization. Since then, there haven't been any updates released about his current condition in a Portland, Oregon intensive care unit. Still, love and support continue to flow from his community on social media.
Taylor Steele, director of Proximity, has joined in the outreach by compiling a montage of Garcia from the early ‘90s. The piece honors Garcia who's had a legendary career, including an ASP World Champion title in 2000, six Triple Crown of Surfing titles, and the all-time record for most World Qualification Series victories — 22 in total.
Steele wrote in the video's description:
Like any life well lived, his career definitely had its ups and downs, but he wore his heart on his sleeve and was pure in his surfing. A true legend.
