Norm Marsh died from prostate cancer earlier this week. 'Stormin Normin' was a fixture on the North Shore since the mid 70s' and could always be seen ripping Laniakea in his speedos. A true NS gem, Norm was a commited surfer, always in top shape and loved the big waves. Thus, the name 'Stormin Normin' cause he charged hard. He was the last person one would expect to lose his life to cancer. It was always assumed 'Stormin Normin' would be hitting the surf into old age. A lesson for us all about the fragile, precious time we have on planet earth. RIP Norm and thank you for the inspiration. Next wave is for you. Aloha, gq.
