I just read that Yancy at age 60 died from a heart attack while surfing Malibu on feb 14 2011.
My condolences to his family and surfers of Pensacola. Yancy was a true surfer, great competitor a
and a gentleman on the beach. my thoughts and prays go out to him and his family. He will be missed.
Billy, I figured you would know him. I met him a few years back when I surfed in the legends division at the Cocoa Beach easter contest. Like you said he was a true gentleman in and out of the water. More info on him avaiable at innerlightsurf.com Michael
