Paddle Out celebrates life of teenage surfer who will forever be remembered by community
Georgetown County, S.C. (WPDE) —
The Elijah Cox's Memorial Paddle Out on Wednesday evening celebrated the life of a teenage surfer who will forever be remembered by community.
The 15-year-old surfer died in a car wreck last month in Georgetown County.
Friends of Elijah and members of the surf community all came together in the water to remember him.
Elijah was an inspiration to many.
A friend of Elijah's says she'll always remember the first person who ever wanted to surf with her.
"Elijah was just that outgoing person anybody could talk to no matter what and, I mean, he still is up in heaven and I'll just talk to him forever, and I'll miss him forever," said Bree Labiak.
