Lowell Avery Bowling

August 7, 1980 - November 25, 2009

beloved son, brother, father, friend

memories of you in the curl of a wave,

carrying your son on your shoulders,

your unmasked enthusiasm,

your sparkle, your soulfulness.

I hope you have found your peace,

my beautiful boy. I miss you so much.

I am so sorry to hear that Lowell is no longer with us. My name is Matthew and me and Lowell were best of freinds
About ten years ago. I have spent days upon months upon years searching the califorina coast for waves. I still have a picture of him catching a bomb at jalama one of our favorite spots and one of my favorite days. It was huge and perfect the bouys red wind so no one was out me him Don Bodin and John Tustin showed up a little latter. Well Don never made it out and John rode the shoulder so it was really just me and my best friend I caught two of the biggest waves of my career before my leash broke . That is why I happened to be on the beach to catch a shot of lowell the way know him, dropping in on a bomb. If any one would like this pic contact
me at Also if any one has any more info about his death I would love to read it. I just don't get what happened and need some closure thank you and may god bless you all and may that fire of Lowells soul and the smile on his face and the love in his heart live in all of us.
I love you Lowell and thank you for being the best surfing partner friend and mentor a man could s ever ask for.
