Our sincere condolences go out to Katie’s  family and friends.

Katie Zullo, Team Rider for Matunuck Surf Shop was killed in a car accident in Woonsocket early Thursday morning. 

“We are so so very sad to learn that we have lost one of the brightest lights I have ever known. Katie Zullo, we will miss your beautiful smile and witty life anecdotes. Go peacefully as you find that next great wave. You are always with us, sweet sweet girl. Much love to you.” ~ Tracey
