March 19th, 2016 was a sad day. Cameron Munro, a 21-year-old surfer from Brighton, UK, drowned while surfing in Bali. He was enjoying his winter holidays traveling and surfing before planning his return this summer back to his second home of Lagos, Portugal.
Cam was one of those guys everybody loved, and I mean everybody. No one had a bad word to say about him and he never had a bad word to say about anyone else. He was a little shy, mellow, handsome and peaceful lad that just got on with things. And he really loved to surf. He was not afraid of adventure and he certainly wasn’t afraid of a party either. He had a way of making you laugh all the time, even without realizing it. And when you were with him you simply felt good about the world around you, and yourself as well. His best friend, Robert Douglas, says “He was an adventurous and open minded guy; venturing to remote parts of the world in search of perfect surf breaks, meeting new people and just genuinely making the most of every situation. Cam was the definition of a ‘life lived to the full,’ packing more into his 21 years of living than most people would in a lifetime, making him an inspiration to so many people. His amazing smile lit up any room and his selflessness and laid back approach to life was admired by everyone he met all over the world. Cam was caring, brave and extremely talented but remained humble and was one of the best friends you could ever ask for.”
