Colin McCulloch Passes Away

Colin McCulloch lost his year long battle with a brain tumor, passing away peacefully this morning with his family close by.

Colin was the shaper for his cult custom board brand, Lost Cause, as well as having been Airush's designer of all their twin-tips and some surfboards for many years. Colin had refused to let the tumor beat him, despite the serious nature of the tumor he was diagnosed with and, until very recently, he was still shaping twin-tips for Aaron Hadlow and paddle-surfing himself. Everyone who knew him or ever kited with him will be totally gutted, as we really have lost one of the UK south coast's best kiters, personalities, good mate and all-round waterman, regularly surfing, SUPing, wind and kitesurfing.
Colin shaped for some of the best kiters around, not just on the UK scene, but people like Felix Pivec and Aaron Hadlow, Tom Hebert, Ali Baratt, Chris Bull and more.
Colin leaves behind two young children, Josh and Mia and his wife Caroline.
