CARLSBAD — On Nov. 13 Kirk Passmore went missing while big wave surfing on the North Shore of Hawaii. 

Passmore, 32, was well-known in the Carlsbad area, where he grew up, including having graduated from Carlsbad High School and who was also a member of the Carlsbad High School surf team. Hundreds took to the waters off of Tamarack State Beach for a paddle out in memory of Passmore on Saturday.

Another paddle out is scheduled for next week in Hawaii, where he had lived full time since 2012. Family and friends said he always had a passion for the ocean. Photos by Tony Cagala
