“Tamayo was a legendary waterman and highly respected,” Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said during a news conference.

“It’s just a tragic loss,” he said.

“At this time, we can confirm that it was one of our own city and county of Honolulu lifeguards, North Shore lifeguard Tamayo Perry,” said Kurt Lager, acting ocean safety chief.

“Tamayo Perry was a lifeguard loved by all. He was well-known on the North Shore. He’s a professional surfer known worldwide,” Lager said.

“Tamayo’s personality was infectious, and as much as people loved him, he loved everyone else more. Our condolences go out to Tamayo’s family and to the entire lifeguard ohana,” he said.
