Sam was a surfer.
Full of spirit and stoke.

His surfing community honored him with a ceremonial, and most beautiful, paddle out.

Sam changed our lives. His courage, sense of humor and intelligence brought joy to everyone.  We love that kid…and his family.  We are excited about the way Sam will continue to change the world through The Sam Day Foundation.”Todd & Mary Fuller
