NorCal charger and filmer Noel Robinson drowned while surfing Puerto Escondio this morning. 

From Surfline photographer Edwin Morales: “I’m really sad to inform you we have lost a good waterman today in Puerto Escondido. He took off on a solid righthander and wiped out and never came out. Lifeguards and everyone else on the beach were looking for an hour and 20 minutes until they finally found his body.”

Robinson was equally home behind the lens and in the water, spending long summer stints in Puerto Escondio and chasing winter swells in NorCal. He’s most recently known for filming Twiggy’s XXL Ride of the Year this winter at the Mav’s contest and has been a frequent Surfline contributor and he’ll be greatly missed. 

Puerto resident Ana Quadros adds, “It wasn’t super big, I don’t know how it happened — no one does.” RIP: NOEL ROBINSON
