David Eggers has passed away at the age of 45, in Salton Sea, California. The goofy-footer was one of the stars of surfing in the 1980s.
Eggers was born in Mountain View, California, in 1970. He caught his first wave at the age of seven. By 1984, David had already won two United States Amateur Championships.
Two years later, and with 225 amateur trophies, the young rider drops out from school, signs pro deals with surf industry brands and ends his rookie campaign on the world tour in 34th place.
