My apologies, as this is a little old news, but I just saw it passed on FB, and thought Dylan Smith deserved a solute from the surf community:
According to the reports, Dylan saved many people with his surfboard during Hurricane Sandy disaster in Rockaway. This hero sadly died in a recent surfing accident in Puerto Rico.

Did any of you NY surfers know Dylan?
