Jay's mother's name is Christy Moriarity. He and his mother have been living without his father ever since he went out to war. His surfing instructor named Frosty, taught him how to ride the big wave. There were important rules to be taught to Jay. Jay was married to the love of his life, Kim Moriarity.
Why is Jay Moriarity so Important?
Jay not only surfed a big wave, there is a story behind him. When he was young, he used to count when the waves were bigger. He was a smart kid, then one day, when he was counting the sets of waves, he was snatched by a wave and brought into sea. All of a sudden, a surfer named Frosty, saved his life from drowning. At that moment, Jay realized his life was all about surfing. Until his big wave, Jay was trained to be the best surfer he could ever be. He sadly passed away on June 15th, 2001. He died when he was scuba diving in the Maldives. He bumped his head on a rock and drowned. He was buried in Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz, California.
