Boardriders, Inc. is announcing several memorial ceremonies to celebrate the life of Pierre Agnes.
The company will honor Pierre’s memory by hosting traditional paddle-out ceremonies around the world for their beloved friend and surfing visionary. During this cherished surfing ritual, surfers paddle out into the ocean and link hands to create a floating circle of solidarity.
Dave Tanner, CEO of Boardriders, Inc. said: “Pierre loved the beauty of the ocean, and lived his life on the water as a surfer and waterman. There is no more fitting way for us to celebrate and honor Pierre’s life than with a paddle-out. We welcome all who knew and loved Pierre to join us and remember a man taken too soon.”
The Australia paddle-out will be in Queensland on March 13, 2018 at 4 p.m. near the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast event at Snapper Rocks. The U.S. paddle-out will be in Huntington Beach, California, on March 16, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. near the Huntington Beach Pier. A paddle-out in France will be scheduled later this spring.
