A Man Has Died Surfing In El Salvador

Tragic news this weekend as a 36-year old from Torrance, California has been confirmed dead while away surfing in El Salvador. The Californian man, Mathew Reid, was found Thursday afternoon at Playa Mizata, in a region of the beach known for its hollow caves.

Reid's disappearance was apparent early on Thursday afternoon when authorities were informed he had gone missing; his body was found trapped in an ocean cave at Playa Mizata later that afternoon. It is still unclear at this stage whether the body has been retrieved due to difficulties with sizeable swell and poorly timed high tides. As of this afternoon, it has been reported that recovery operations are ongoing.  

Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of Mathew Reid, particularly his wife and two children. A GoFundMe has been set up to support them financially in this harrowing time.
