It’s hard for all us to imagine our lives without Casey. He touched each and every one of us in his own special way. Casey was a connector and his friendships ran deep and wide. Those of us fortunate enough to have spent time with him will always share that special bond. When blessed with his presence there was always a feeling that hit you deep inside your heart and soul.

I think we can all agree Casey was one of a kind and bigger than life. His smile. His style, in and out of the water was effortless and confident. His deep love and connection with music. Always dancing to the beat of his own drum. His wisdom and knowledge of the world and love for culture. His compassion for everyone. His mad fashion was next level. Only Casey could rock plaid pants, pink Adidas, a satin bomber jacket and his signature hat … tilted just his way. His walk and swagger could be spotted a block away. His signature whistle always got you pumped when hearing it in the line-up on an epic day. His wit and humor. His passion for surfing. Teaching kids and people from all over the world how to surf. That genuine connection he made with everyone that crossed his path. No one made you feel more loved. Even meeting someone for the first time he radiated energy that felt as if he knew them a lifetime. He had an aura about him that was angelic and powerful. Everyone was family.

His passion for life will carry on through all our beautiful memories we each share of him. The days ahead will feel empty and challenging for us all, but deep down we all know Casey will be by our side and he would want us to keep our heads up, always be positive, and love each other. God Bless ~ Scooter

    I had the pleasure of meeting Casey and Ziggy in 2019, working on special projects for Sport Of Kings. Casey was such a tremendous talent, soft spoken but with conviction. I admired him as he was kind, fearless and inspirational! I want to thank both Casey and Ziggy for believing in me and my expertise in the industry. They helped me so much at one of lowest points of my life. I will forever be grateful to have met and worked with Casey. He always answered my emails in such kind manner. He was a true legend! Happy Birthday Casey! RIP ( A Real Brother)

    When Wheat came back to town about a decade or so ago, I was surfing a a small day on Northside on a 5’5 MR twinnie…Casey was teaching lessons on the inside. Casey wanted to try my board so bad…I was like “ok, but it’s tiny for me even” (I’m 5’7)…Casey grabbed it and absolutely shredded right off the bat. My mind was blown. He was the tallest guy and surfed so good on the smallest boards, even on a pumping day! He surfed good on anything under his feet. Casey was always one of the guys I looked up to here in HB since I was a teenager. He was an all around great human being. I can still see him stylin’ down the line every time I paddle out. I pretty much mind surf like Wheat when the lefts are on. Miss you buddy.
