SoCal Paddleboarder Death With No PFD

More details on the 26-year old man who died in Southern California earlier this week when he fell off his paddleboard. He was in the Huntington Beach Harbor. He did not know how to swim. He was not wearing a PFD. News reports don’t mention a leash, but given that he was with a relative and search crews had trouble finding him, he probably wasn’t wearing one. The board was a rental.
