Rest in Peace : Oscar Moncada

The surfing world grieves the loss of another member of its family, Oscar Moncada

LOS ANGELES, California/USA (Sunday, November 26, 2017) - A day after learning of the tragic passing of Jean da Silva, the WSL learned this morning of the loss of Oscar Moncada, who perished in an auto accident yesterday near his home in Puerto Escondido.

Moncada, 34, was a staple of the Puerto Escondido community and a competitor on the WSL Big Wave Tour.

"There's not much left for us today aside from grief," Sophie Goldschmidt, WSL CEO, said. "Oscar was not only a member of the WSL Big Wave family, but also a well-loved talent within the Central American surf community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those we've lost recently."
