Tamayo Perry’s death was confirmed by Honolulu’s emergency services.

Speaking on behalf of the emergency services, Shayne Enright said that Mr Perry began his career as a lifeguard with the Ocean Safety department in July 2016.

He went on to work as a lifeguard on the North Shore.

Perry also appeared as a pirate in the Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, starring Johnny Depp.

Paying tribute to Perry, Acting Honolulu Ocean Safety chief Kurt Lager said that the he was  “a lifeguard loved by all”.

“He’s well known on the North Shore. He’s a professional surfer known worldwide,” Mr Lager said. “Tamayo’s personality was infectious and as much as people loved him, he loved everyone else more”. 

Meanwhile, Honolulu mayor Rick Blangiardi also called Mr Perry’s death “a tragic loss”. He also added: “Tamayo was a legendary waterman and highly respected”. 

Following his death, Ocean Safety posted personal shark warnings in the area.

Following his legal victory in a high profile defamation case taken against ex wife Amber Heard, rumours began to spread that Johnny Depp had been set to return to the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

Depp sued Ms Heard over an article where she alleged that he had abused her throughout their marriage. More on this from Nova here.
