DEREK HO, 55 years old. September 26 1964 – July 17 2020

Masons tribute to uncle Derek….


Here is just a tiny glimpse into UNCLE D’s final 5 years. All clips were filmed in the last 5 years. You can see he was living life to the fullest till the very end!

This man was/is an INCREDIBLE Father, Brother, Uncle, Husband & Friend. Always inspiring people around him and BLOWING MINDS in the water or on land. The first ever Hawaiian World Champion. A scientist of FUN! 100% one of the Kings of Pipeline and was blown out of the barrel more than most will know. We will forever carry on your energy and passion for life and surfing.

ALoha. “Do not go gentle into that good night…”

Thank you & Filming: Rory Pringle, Alani Media, Michael Veltman, Freesurf Magazine, Larry Haynes, Justin Rutherford, Chris Latronic, Tyler Rock, Zac Ramos, Landon Hayashi & Mason Ho (GoPro).
