anne. >> reporter: the search continues. it has been going on since daybreak today. this man is very well known in the area. so a lot of people are helping search for him in the water, in the air and on land. it's a popular surfing spot off the marin county coast where 40- year-old dan dafoe came several times a week. >> he has been surfing out here for over 30 years. >> reporter: he was last seen alive last night when he went surfing off rodeo beach with two friends. when he was in the open water, somehow he fell unconscious and stopped breathing. his friends tried to do cpr but a wave crashed over them and dan was washed away. the coast guard and fire department tried to locate him for two hours but stopped when darkness and rough waters made it unsafe. the community is so small, many of the rescue workers knew dan. >> it was even weighing harder on us to make that decision but, you know, we work with
12:02 pm
rescue professionals and we knew it was the right thing to do. >> reporter: the water temperature here is about 54 degrees. rescuers say there is no way dan survived the night. >> ever since i was little coming out here, he always took me under his wing. >> reporter: friends and family spent the day at the coast waiting for word. >> it's hard to, like, fathom this whole experience. >> reporter: dan was born and raised in san rafael, worked as a local contractor and moonlit in band called the atomic machine. >> it's a huge loss for the surf community and everybody who knew him. he will truly be really missed, you know? >> reporter: a lot of questions this afternoon. why exactly did dan stop breathing out there in the water initially? was that some sort of medical condition? or did he have an accident in the ocean? we may never know. live in the marin headlands anne makovec, kpix 5. this is state of the state address today governor jerry brown laid out the ways

day is going to be kale, tuscan kale. it has three different names. it is absolutely beautiful. when you buy it, make sure it's green all the way around just like. free from any yellowing whatsoever and check the veins here, too. you want to make sure there's no yellowing here. where it's been cut, nice and clear and feel nice and fresh. when you bring it home, simply you want to store the kale in the refrigerator right away. now, it looks hearty but every day you keep it in the refrigerator, the nutritional value starts to deplete and it's loaded with nutritional value. it's a superfood. by the way, it's milder and a little tastier as far as i'm concerned as the regular kale. store it from the refrigerator and use it within two or three days. great in soups, great saute, great just about any way you like to enjoy it. like i said, a superfood. i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. and always remember to eat fresh and stay healthy. remember, it has to feel fresh. research shows childhood trauma leads to lifelong health problems so a doctor is creating a national model of care. sharon chin introduces us to this week's jefferson award winner.
