Kauai police today identified a 61-year-old man, who apparently drowned Tuesday while surfing off Poipu Beach, as Gary Schultz of Kalaheo.

Schultz was found unresponsive at about 8:15 a.m. in the ocean fronting Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club, police said.

The Kauai Fire Department, Kauai Ocean Safety Bureau lifeguards and American Medical Response paramedics also responded.
