Although I have sadly moved away and don't check in very often, I was so sad to read of Dan's passing. I can't believe it's been almost 20 years since I met Sunrise when I first started surfing. I never met anyone with more stoke. A genuine good and honest heart and inspiration to everyone he met, as shown by all of these wonderful posts. My most sincere condolences to Melody and his family. I am very sad I won't be there for his paddleout, but I know Dan will get these messages and good vibes up there. Rest and surf on in peace. Collin

I know, it is sad. I surfed Hightower yesterday and that was the last spot I saw Dan a few months ago. I didn't know a single person out surfing. It's always nice to see someone you know and Dan was that guy typically.

A small photo tribute for a great friend... always happy and smiling!

so very sorry for your loss Melody...i always pictured you two riding off into the Sunset together.




Dan's new leash!











Of course a little lunch with friends after a session...



or dinner!




With his Favorite Surfer Girl








Surfed everyday, any place and any size!






Outside at The pier on a big day!




A shore pound on a sloppy day!




or by himself on a rainy day




Always looking for waves!---- even if i had to take you to the airport at 4AM to catch a plane to Fuji or was it Indonesia?




Who else would have his garage door painted with a surf scene but Mr Sunrise Surfer!




But most of the time Dan was where the best surf was for that day













Until our paths cross again old friend...Wax up that board!





...find us a spot with warm water, offshore winds and perfect waves

Yes, that was a beautiful photo collection of Mr. Dan and his surfing passion, B.
You the man, and thank you very much for putting that together.

Thanks, Burry and everyone! It has been a very difficult time. Saturday Dan will be released back to the sea where he loved to be. Thank you for all your kind words, texts, messages, and prayers. They are very much appreciated. Melody
