WATCH / Goodbye, Buttons / EOS

Buttons, by Dan MerkelLegendary surfer Montgomery Ernest Thomas Kaluhiokalani, or Buttons as he was affectionately known, passed away over the weekend.

While he may have struggled with substance abuse at some stages, Buttons was always ripper, pushing surfing forward with his wild 360s and switch-foots, always with a big smile on his face when in the water.

Ride in peace, Buttons, find the eternal barrel.
