The recent passing of Hawaii based surf photographer and all around ambassador of Aloha Jeff “Mana” Walthall has shaken the surf community. He passed on October 12, 2015 from heart complications doing what he loved at his beloved, Makaha Beach. The amount of aloha he spread just from his smile alone was one that radiated for miles. His personality exceeded it farther by showing what the true meaning of aloha meant by consistently giving back to the community and spending a few minutes with you just to talk story.
Team Hawaii, felt the waves of remorse all the way in Oceanside, California for the ISA World Junior Championships. They paid their respects to Mana by having a paddle out and also is dedicating this years triumphs to the surf photographer. You will be greatly missed Mana…..ALOHA!
