Tribute flowed to an Australian surfer whose body was found to have been stranded on the beach in Bali after being reported missing just 12 hours earlier.
Friends are grateful to Jae Haydon, the man said by Indonesian authorities who died after a surfing accident yesterday.
Haydon’s body was found on the water at Padang Padang beach last night, after washing the board of broken skate on Uluwatu coast that day, according to News Corp.
In his 30s, Haydon is a popular local musician from Woonona near Wollongong and is on its way to surfing with friends in Bali.
He was thrown from the waves and reported missing at 7.30 in the morning.
Social media is burning with the recognition of Hardon, who has a Facebook post saying that he is “deeply missed by everything and not forgotten.””Yesterday we lost a legend, a brother and a mate. I still wish it wasn’t true,” Damian James Cole posted.
“He was the most genuine person you will ever meet. I’ll miss sharing waves, having brewskis and listening to you belt out some bangers.”
Bec Reynolds said she was “totally devastated and lost for words to find out you have been taken from this world.”
“I can’t believe just last week we were talking about your waves in Sumatra,” she posted.
“You will be solely missed by many people and the Jindy community will never be the same.”
The chief of Denpasar’s National Search and Rescue Agency told News Corp that Mr Haydon was hit by a wave.
“He was surfing when a strong wave hit him and his surf board was broken,” Ketut Gede Ardana said.
