The tragic death of Kalani David, a professional surfer, skateboarder, and former world junior surfing champion, shocked and saddened people all over the world as well as sparked an outpouring of condolences on social media. David was born in Hawaii.
On September 17, Kalani David died while surfing in Costa Rica. The 24-year-old Hawaiian skater-surfer departed us after having a seizure, according to the narrative. The accomplished boardsports enthusiast had been afflicted by long-term health concerns, including Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome. In August 2016, he experienced a seizure while ice skating in a park in Oceanside, California.
He had a six-hour seizure at the end of the year while still recuperating at his Oahu home. But Kalani almost died at that exact moment. He was placed in a two-day medically induced coma following his hospitalization. Kelly Slater, an 11-time World Surf League winner and one of the world’s most outstanding surfers/skaters, conveyed his condolences in a letter. In an Instagram story, Slater remarked, “he was always pushing his limits.”
