Last week, the surfing community lost one of its most fun-loving, charismatic sons. Shawn “Barney” Barron left a unique mark on progressive surfing and will continue to inspire future generations to have fun and try weird shit. The Santa Cruz native oozed with a level of creativity and lightheartedness that translated through both his surfing and art – and his ever glowing presence will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Barney.
