We are sad to report today that the body of Danny Bobis (drummer for Long Beach, NY hardcore/metal/punk band Cipher) has been found. Bobis went missing this past Sunday while surfing in Indonesia. Numerous news sources are reporting that Bobis’ body was found earlier this morning in the waters of Sumatra by a fisherman. Bobis was 32 years old.
In addition to drumming in Cipher, Danny was a math teacher and surf coach at Long Beach, NY’s local high school. In fact, he had started the first surfing team in New York State for his students. It is indeed a devastating loss for the Long Island community. Our deepest condolences go out to Danny’s family and friends.
