Mickey McCarthy passed away suddenly today. An absolute legend of East Coast board building and surf photography. His board label New Sun went back a long way on the East Coast but he was best known for his stunning surf photography capturing the best the Outer Banks and the East Coast had to offer. Just Tuesday he was posting pics of some home improvements he'd been working on followed by an upbeat post the next day from a hospital bed after an apparent cardiac issue and getting some stents put in. This morning word spread that he had passed suddenly. Life is short my friends. Live every day to the fullest. RIP Mickey.
