Nearly 100 paddlers formed a circle and joined hands Sunday morning off the end of the Manhattan Beach pier in memory of body boarder, and nature and surf photographer Tim Tindall. He was also a longtime and highly appreciated employee at the Kinkos/FedEx in Hermosa Beach.

Tindall was known for generously sharing his photos with the surfers he photographed,  and was a frequent contributor to Easy Reader. In 2020 he won Easy Reader’s Annual anniversary photography for a picture he took of a family exercising at the Palos Verdes Cove, silhouetted by the sunset. Tindall passed away last month from cancer. He was 59.

He is survived by brothers Thomas and Theodore, and sister Teresa Spears. ER
