  2. To Monte’s family, sincere condolences from a body surfer in Western Australia. I listened to Monte’s mother’s eloquent words about his love of surfing, and it is clear that he also had a strong loving family. Although I never met Monte, we shared the love of the ocean, the love of bodysurfing as a pure sport. It is a bond that binds us together across the oceans. My thoughts are with you during your time of grief.

  3. I never met Monte in person,but we had several hours of great talks about business and life in general.We shared alot of talks in common about our Native heritage,I only wished to have been able to have met Monte in person to thank him for all his words of wisdom and courage he has given me over the last 4 years.I know he is with the Great Spirits,still helping me ,guiding me and giving me the strength I need.He will be greatly MISSED !!!

All I can say is we prayed so very hard for his well being and were truly saddened to find out Monte passed away. This website has helped us come to terms with everything, as well as to see that Monte was loved and seems to have had a good family and life. Again, we were deeply moved and we are greatful to have this opportunity to respectfully send our condolences. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Teresa & Ron Cina
