August 26, 2023 Rocky Point Paddle Out
Mikala Jones – April 3, 1979 to July 9, 2023
Mikala suffered a mortal injury when his surfboard fin cut his femoral artery while surfing in the Mentawai Islands.
The Mikala Jones Oahu Memorial Paddle Out was held at Rocky Point Rights. Somewhere between 500 and 1,000 friends attended. The family held a private memorial in a house on the beach while the rest of Mikala’s friends waited patiently on the sand for the paddle out. Too young and too soon.
This video is only intended to give you an overview sense of the day. Condolences to the family and his close friends.
