This board is made on behalf of the pioneer and legendary ocean photographer, the late Jon Mozo. Who gave his life capturing beauty for others. To all those that follow in his wake, this board is for you.
Jon was a well-respected and loved photographer and family man. He lived every day with an incredible passion that transcended into every aspect of his life. Jon's most captivating works reveal his profound understanding of the ocean and the deep sense of humility and respect he felt towards it.
Jon often risked his life to capture compelling images of nature's most powerful art form- the ocean. On Wednesday, February 9, 2005 Jon suffered fatal head injuries while photographing at one of his favorite spots, Backdoor Pipeline.
The impression Jon left as an artist and as a person continues to inspire people to be more loving, more engaged and more conscious of the beauty in and around us.
His last words left in a note to his family, found a year after his passing were:
If I die today - It's fine.
I've lived a good and full life.
The ocean gives so much to me.
The day will come it will need to take -
And I'll give.
I have love for all of you - very much so.
I'll always be watching over.
