Hi SUPers, in case any of you knew Greenroom. as i understand, he was right into SUPing as well as many other watersports

Just got the sad news from a friend of mine that Owen Palliers (i believe he was Greenroom on seabreeze) was involved in a car accident last night and tragically passed away as a result.

I didn't know Owen personally, only by his posts on here and from my friend telling me of his crazy windsurfing/surfing exploits. From what i have heard, he was quite the waterman who ventured across multiple disciplines.

his brother started a go fund me to help the family pay for his funeral:

RIP Greenroom

Very sad new and thanks for letting us know..

I've known Greenie for year and he was a very good 'Seabreeze' friend who would often 'out of the blue' contact me and we would chat.. I always wanted to venture over to WA and catch up with him in person.

It's sad that that won't happen now.. I'll miss him.

Have known Greenie for many many years. From Lano trips chasing wind and swell when we both lived in Perth to now both living in the SW and foiling. He will be sadly missed by the whole community down here. Please support Simone, Jake and Kirra by donating above. Absolute tragedy. RIP Owen.

Such tragic news, did my first Doctor race as part of the Starboard crew with Owen in 2010. He was such a genuine, kind and interesting guy - devastating. Condolences to his family

Horrible news. Greeny was a great contributor to this forum right from the early days (12 years ago). I considered him an "online" friend - a lovely bloke. RIP.
