Tamayo, a well-known surfer, was killed by a shark off Mālaekahana Beach on Oahu, Hawaii, on Sunday. Local surfers discovered his body. According to Stab Magazine, TP’s arm and leg were removed when his body was discovered.

Kurt Lager, Honolulu’s ocean safety chief, shared a similar opinion, saying, “Tamayo’s personality was infectious, and as much as people loved him, he loved everyone else more.”

In addition to his part as a buccaneer in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” Tamayo played minor roles in the sports-romance film “Blue Crush” and the CBS adaptation of “Hawaii Five-0.”

Tamayo is survived by his wife Emilia. He was only 49.
