Drew Brees was among the 200 surfers to pay tribute to the late San Diego Charger great Junior Seau during a “paddle out” on Sunday. This all happened on the beachfront outside the Oceanside, California home of the former NFL star.

Seau passed away last Wednesday at the age of 43 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Brees, who played with Seau for two seasons with the Chargers, joined the other surfers in forming a large circle on their boards out in the water, chanting Seau’s name periodically and slapping their hands in the water for about an hour.

“We were in the water where I know Junior loved to be,” Brees told USA Today. “It was a beautiful day because Junior is present here with us.”

Seau was an avid surfer who was often seen riding the waves near his home.

“It was pretty unbelievable that so many people came out to pay tribute,” Brees said. “Junior truly was an inspiring person and somebody whose spirit will live forever.”
