Farewell To Beaver

Posted: November 24, 2011 at 8:01 pm

November 2011 was a time of great sorrow. Former Kurnell kid Brett Shweickle better known as Beaver sadly passed away. One of Occy’s buddies Beaver grew up with the Kurnell crew surfing the Point as well as competing for CBC in the 80’s. Beaver was another of the popular hometown heroes who up to only a few months ago was diganosed with cancer . A huge turnout of friends including Richard Maurer, Camo, Veage, Darcy and Occy had a paddle-out at Kurnell for their mate where his ashes were sent a drift as he requested. He will be forever missed by his many friends and deepest condolences to his wife and kids.This shot of Beaver at The Island was taken early 90’s by Chris Stroh.
