Surfline founder passes away

Sad day in the surf forecast biz, as Surfline founder and President Sean Collins passed away of an apparent heart attack. He was 59.

Collins was widely recognized as the premiere global surf forecast guru, and one of the inventors of the online surf forecast. In 2008 he was inducted into the Surfer’s Hall of Fame.

Thoughts go out to Sean’s family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
