PostSubject: For those of you that knew Michael in Kuta   Mon Mar 16, 2009 12:17 pm

I am sorry to say that Michael died while surfing in Sumatra last week.

The details are still unclear. If I get more confirmed information I will let you know.

Michael was a fixture for several years in Kuta and will be known by many if not all on the Kuta surf scene.

He was a long term guest and frequent visitor to Mimpi Manis.

We are very sad to hear of his death but one consolation may be, that at least he died doing what he loved.

RIP Michael.

Gemma

yes michael was a good friend. to me he was a surf buddy. we surfed some good days at mawi and outside ekas. on the way in to mawi he would stop and talk to anybody (lokal) willing and give a cigarette. to my wife and her family in sengkol he was a generous and caring bule who would visit periodically bring "lollis" and other small gifts for the many kids there. michael will be missed and i will think of him when out surfing at mawi and ekas. tom

thanks for the photo Gemma. I was aware of the ceremony but the photo really hit me. Michael and I had some good times at Mawi. I'll really miss my friend.

I couldnt be there either Tom but seeing the photo brought it home to me too. Michaels picture, and especially his boardies and t -shirt that we most often saw him in. I have some more photos that Kimen sent me. If you would like them and dont have them already, I will forward them to you.

Yes Gemma, please forward what you have. I am not much for taking photos and don't have any of Michael. Thank you, Tom.
