URFING champion Kalani David has died at the age of 24 after experiencing a medical emergency while practicing.

The Hawaiian pro died in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica on Saturday after suffering a seizure while in the water, according to local officials.

He was surfing when he apparently suffered some kind of epileptic seizure and drowned," the country's Judicial Investigation Department told the Associated Press.

"Kalani passed away in Costa Rica today, he had a massive seizure while surfing," friend Peter King wrote in an Instagram post announcing the death.

He continued: "He had re-connected with family there and was having such a great time. I'll always remember your stoke when we'd shoot skate n surf, and how much hop you had for (your) future.

"God bless the family and extended family that were always there for you."


That's crazy....so young.

I think we all love surfing and we all can't imagine our lives without it, but his case was truly that choice. In some ways, I wish he was still alive but I understand too living in fear of death for the rest of your life and not being able to do the thing that makes you feel the joy of living. He died with his boots on and he was a true soldier. It makes me sad his time was up before his wave count was.
