Honoring the Life of Gary Smither

Recently, the Oregon surfing community lost a great man and a great surfer. Longtime Surfrider member and Coos Bay resident Gary Smither passed away after a long battle with cancer. Gary will be missed by all, and remembered for his positive attitude towards life. There will be a honorary paddleout at the North End of Bastendorf Beach in Charleston on August 8th, starting at 3pm. There will be a potluck, BBQ, and a bon fire to follow. Please come and join everyone in having fun and remembering Gary. Pictured above is Gary on a recent trip to Sumatra with friends, doing what he loved…
