More sad news on what's been a tragic weekend for the global surfing family, with the death of Mexican big wave charger and tube hound Oscar Moncada in a car accident, along with three other passengers who were all also killed.

Puerto Escondido local Moncada's death comes just a day after the news of Jean da Silva's passing, on a sad weekend for the Latin American and global surfing family.

Moncada posted a tribute to Da Silva on IG shortly before the accident: “Rest in peace, my friend, #RIP. Even as a person as good as Jean da Silva can leave us of this world. Today I wake up with this sad news…I will miss you, brother, today I cry for you."

Look after yourselves out there, and more importantly, look after each other.
