“He was surfing when he apparently suffered some kind of epileptic seizure and drowned,” the country’s Judiciary told the Associated Press.

“Kalani passed away today in Costa Rica, he had a massive seizure while surfing,” friend Peter King wrote in an Instagram post announcing the death.

He continued, “He reconnected with his family there and had such a great time. I will always remember your stoke when we were filming skating and surfing and how much jump you had for (your) future.

“God bless the family and extended family who have always been there for you.”
