No riders, only big empty waves in Oregon on Thursday.
The entire Vans family is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Sion Milosky yesterday. Sion had recently become an active member of the Vans surf team with a terrific season on the North Shore this winter. More importantly, he was a loving husband and a wonderful father to two young daughters.
In December, Sion won $25,000 through the Vans and Surfing Magazine North Shore Underground program with the intention of financing future surf trips. Vans will contribute the entire amount to a special memorial fund that has been established to assist Milosky's wife and children:
THE SION MILOSKY MEMORIAL FUND
(at Bank of Hawaii)
For anyone in the state of Hawaii, contributions can be made at any Bank of Hawaii branch by simply requesting that the contribution go to "the Sion Milosky Memorial Fund".
For those outside of Hawaii, contributions can also be made via PayPal detalis of which are still TBC.
