Jose Rommel Souza

It is with great sadness that we are hearing that one of our members, Jose Rommel Souza may have been on Air France Flight 447.

Rommel was a brilliant surfer, a much loved and active member of the club.

He joined several years ago, and straightaway made a huge impact, amongst other things joining a core group of big wave surfers within the club.

He would regularly chase waves all over Europe and the World at a moment's notice.

Our heartfelt thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to his family and the ones he loved at this difficult time.
