The man's family confirmed on 24/04/2018 the 35-year-old's body
was found is Australian national Jae Haydon
12 hours after a broken board washed up last night near
Padang Padang Beach, near Kuta, in the tourist island's south.
Indonesian authorities confirmed that Badung lifeguards found
a body floating in the water on Monday night,
His sister, Heidi Haydon, said in a text:
"My mum and I are feeling the love from all and know
that you would understand we would appreciate privacy at this time."
A friend of Mr Haydon's, Mark Brightwell, said
the surfer's board snapped after a wipeout.
He said two surfers tried to pull Mr Haydon
onto another board and bring him to shore,
but they reportedly lost him when another wave hit.
"Obviously in the 10-15-foot conditions the white wash
would have been powerful and obviously
they weren't able to maintain him on the board and lost him," he said.
Mr Brightwell said his body was located at another surf break,
Impossibles, which was further down the reef.
Early reports suggested it was brought in by lifeguards.
