Yesterday, 21 April 2012, a Tribute was held for David Lilienfeld on Camps Bay Beach. David, a Bodyboarder on the World Tour was tragically taken by a Shark Attack in Kogel Bay 2 days prior.
This “Paddle Out” ceremony was attended by well over a thousand spectators and the ceremonial ring formed in the water was made up of hundreds of people. A board was floated in his honour where a bucket filled with messages written for him was set alight.
