CAUSE OF DEATH: Professional surfer, Kalani David, has tragically passed away after the former Hawaiian champ suffered a massive seizure while practicing in the waters of Costa Rica

Professional surfer Kalani David has tragically passed away after the former Hawaiian champ suffered a massive seizure while practicing in the waters of Costa Rica. (Read More Here).

David's mother, Andrea, launched a GoFundMe on Sunday ... saying she needs help getting his body back to the states so she can bury him next to his grandfather in Florida.

"Our son is laying in wait at a morgue in San Jose, Costa Rica," Andrea said on the site.

"He deserved more than I could ever give him and I don’t even feel right for asking but I will for Kalani. I don’t want my son in a jar or spread on the water, as I would see fit for myself."

Andrea added, "I want to give him a place you can go see him and know he is listening when you share your feelings with him."

"I love you Kalani! This world will never be the same without you."

R.I.P. However, his illness did not prevent him from succeeding in sports and he practiced both surfing and skateboarding. He won the Junior World Surfing title in Panama in 2012, in the Under-16 category, while competing for first place in the main skate circuits.

The young American died on Saturday morning in Playa Hermosa, Jacó, on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Judicial Investigation Agency confirmed.

"He was surfing when he apparently suffered some kind of epileptic seizure and drowned," the entity said in a message to The Associated Press. "The death is still under investigation."

The filmmaker Peter King was one of the first to disclose his death through social media, while praising his fighting spirit.

Various figures from the world of surfing echoed the news shortly after, such as 11-time world champion Kelly Slater.

"Kalani was one of the most talented surfers/skaters in the world," he said on social media.

His illness forced him to pause his sports career on several occasions but then he resumed it.

"He was constantly pushing his limits," Slater added. "My condolences to the great family and friends that Kalani had on every beach around the world."
