ABOUT BOB:
1st Annual event honoring Bob Nealy, who passed away September 1, 2016 from a long and exhaustive battle with lymphoma. Bob would have been 71 on Halloween of 2016. In 1959, he began playing water polo at Newport Harbor High School, which eventually led him to a collegiate career at Orange Coast College and then UC Irvine. Blending his passion for the pool and the surf, Nealy started teaching at San Clemente High School in 1970 and later at Capo Valley. He taught American Cultures, US History, Contemporary World Problems, and Wilderness Living. He was also involved in the surf and ski clubs at SCHS and CVHS. Starting in 1998, he coached the Frosh-Soph and JV girls and boys water polo teams at SCHS. In 2003, he moved to Tesoro High school and after 34 years as an educator, he retired in 2005.
Never giving up on his passion for water polo, Nealy would periodically drop by the high schools’ practices and get in the pool with the aspiring young athletes.
After retiring from CUSD, Nealy kept surfing and got back into playing masters water polo.
In 2011, Nealy received the Bryan Weaver Male Master of the Year Award from United States Water Polo (USAWP) for his involvement with masters water polo. He was also inducted into the UC Irvine Hall of Fame for swimming and water polo. “He cites water polo in giving him a psychological advantage in battling his illness, still being able to do what he loves—play water polo,” noted USWP when honoring Nealy. His grace and class will be greatly missed throughout the San Clemente community, where he spent most of his life. He leaves his wife, Sara, and son, Trevor, behind. Bob had found a way to turn his passions into a business. His company SURFMORE has been a leader in the development of surf leases and has become a worldwide giant in the surf accessory industry.
