Northern California native and part-time Puerto resident Noel Robinson drowns while surfing Puerto

Sad news was delivered to us this morning from SURFING Magazine photographer Jeff Flindt who was down in Puerto shooting photos. Noel Robinson, great surfer and friend of SURFING Magazine drowned one hour after this photo above was shot. Noel has been one of the hardest charging surfers in Puerto for a really long time and is very well respected in and out of the surf.

Last year we had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with Noel when he came along with Greg Long to our Google Earth Challenge trip. He was one of the nicest people around and will be greatly missed. We will update you on the details as they become available.
