Legendary surfer, 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor, killed in shark attack

Tamayo Perry, 49, was surfing in his native Hawaii when a 911 caller reported a shark attack and his body was brought ashore

Tamayo Perry, a legendary surfer and lifeguard in his native Hawaii, was killed Sunday in an apparent shark attack just east of Oahu's North Shore.

A 49-year-old native of that area, Perry earned far-flung recognition not just for his ability to ride huge waves but also for having portrayed characters in several films and TV shows, including "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Hawaii Five-0."

"Tragic though his passing may be," read a message posted Monday on the Instagram account of a surfing instruction business Perry ran with his wife, "he left this world doing what he loved where he loved to do it."
