A local legend has lost his life while surfing at Sandon Point this morning.
Emergency services were called just before 8am.
Colin ‘Colza’ Hunter , in his 60s, was well known to local surfers as ‘the Mayor of Bellambi’. He was a regular on the bike track as he made his way to Bellambi or Sandon Point for a surf each day.
It’s believed ‘Colza’ suffered a heart attack in the water. Sandon Point Boardriders president Jason Gava is being hailed for his efforts to bring him to shore- a difficult task given the morning’s swell- before CPR was administered without success.
