Loss Of The Year: Sion Milosky
During one of the last big swells of the season this past March, renowned big-wave rider Sion Milosky from Kauai drown at Mavericks after getting caught up by a mountain of whitewash. Sion was a role model to all and loved his family more than anything. Since his passing, a saying, “Live Like Sion” has been instituted worldwide and his name will live on in the form of the “Steep And Deep Challenge” that will reward the surfer who best emulates Sion’s fearless approach to big Pipeline and Backdoor this Winter. While he is missed daily, Sion’s spirit lives on in all of us. Rest in peace, brother.
