MIKE NISHIHARA (NISH)

Our friend and fellow Kana Lui Outrigger paddler Mike Nishihara passed away in September 2007. At the time, we named our new (red) canoe “Mike ‘Nish’ Nishihara” and we organized a memorial paddle and lei ceremony on the water to pay our respects. In the spring of 2008 we held the first Nish Memorial race and Luau attended by his mother Rose and sister Beth. We blessed the canoe and Beth performed beautiful chants to honor Mike. Since then, we have held an annual race in his honor. 

ANDRES POMBO 

On August 21st, 2015 we lost fellow Sup Paddler and Waterman, Andres Pombo. He was to participate in the Naish Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge, which is a huge downwind race in Oregon. During a practice run he got separated from his Fanatic SUP teammates and drowned. 

He was a pillar in the SFL paddle community. He was more than just another athlete. He was a giver, a gentleman someone you could count on. His happiness was contagious and the hole he left will be a tough one to fill. He was an intricate part in establishing the Special Olympics 305SUP team. Originally from Uruguay, he lived in Miami and is survived by his loving wife Luz Angela, parents and brother. The SUP community suffered a great loss that day but also learned a valuable lesson regarding water safety.
