Long Beach remembers a surfing legend -

Saturday, April 08, 2017

As surfing progressed, it never really passed him by.”Hundreds of friends and family members attended funeral services for Ward last month, which was followed by a memorial paddle-out on March 25 at Clayton Avenue beach in East Atlantic Beach, where Ward lived. There was also a paddle-out in the Puerto Rican surf spot Marias last month.“It was amazing — there was a phenomenal turnout,” Shane said of the local memorial. “For what could have been a somber day, we celebrated as he would have wanted. He was an integral part of the surfing community. I’m sure every surfer from Long Beach has some sort of story about him.”“He surfed the hurricane swells and was always out there for the big East Coast waves,” added Cliff Skudin, co-owner of Skudin Surf. “He was always about having fun in the water and sharing waves with others. He really brought good vibes.”Ward is survived by his children, Shane and Kaysi; brothers Mikey and Gary; a sister, Joyce; and his mother, Gaye.  Ward, who would have turned 58 on April 26, died while surfing in the Rincon area, possibly from a heart attack, though a cause of death has yet to be determined, family and friends said. According to Surfline, those who were with him attempted to give him first aid under extreme conditions, and stayed with him until a Coast Guard helicopter arrived.“He was the picture of fitness,” said Shane, who grew up surfing with his dad. “It was sudden, and it sucked because no one got to say goodbye to him. He was surfing one his favorite waves in the world and he was surfing good.”Ward was a lifelong Long Beach resident and a Long Beach High graduate. He played soccer in high school and at Ulster County Community College, where he won a national championship, Kaysi said. He went on to coach soccer for the Long Beach Lightning Bolts and at the Recreation Center after his children were born. “He was a really good coach, and he loved coaching kids and making people better, whether it was surfing or soccer,” Kaysi said. Ward was friendly and approachable, according to family and friends, but often “told it like it is.”“He had that ability to motivate and inspire people,” Kaysi said. “I played soccer in college at Towson, and definitely wouldn’t have if it weren’t for my dad. He never let me keep my participation ribbons as a kid — he wasn’t a believer
