Theodore Kenneth Smith. March 13th 1959-December 31st 2011

Ted died while surfing Windansea yesterday. He was one of the kindest and most soulful people I've ever known. Images are from footage of Ted riding a Caster singlefin at Simmons reef in 1979, a place he surfed with style, grace, and power. Footage shot by Jim Weaver. We will miss you Ted. Beyond words.

Ted was my junior high school sweetheart! I am shocked and saddened to hear of his passing... May he rest in peace and be blessed by eternal GOOD WAVES!

I did not know Ted but am also a surfer and was born in 1959, like Ted, and find it really sad that someone so young and going by the comments, much loved should pass away so suddenly. My condolences to all family and friends.

I didnt know this man, but if he rated here he must have been good folk.
In the old South of my youth when you saw a funeral procession driving down the road, you pulled over and sat out of respect whether you knew them or not. Some of us still do. This is as close as I can get on the net. Our condolences to his friends and family.
