From Kents daughter's FB page.

For those that don’t already know, my father, Kent Sherwood passed away in his home with his family around him after a short battle with lung cancer on the 18th of January. As we are aware that he was loved by many, we wanted to let those who would like to attend a celebration of his life know that it won’t be held until July 14th, tentatively scheduled to occur at “Sunset” Restaurant on Westward Beach, in Malibu. Those that were in his surf/skate/business circles, please reach out to all those that will be interested and let them know, please feel free to share this so that the word can get out. I will create an event page shortly and will be inviting/welcoming those who would like to to keep updated on the July plans. Thanks for everyone’s well wishes and we look forward to celebrating with you in July.

Kent & TA.

Getting some.

RIP Kent Sherwood and condolences to his family and loved ones. 

Of note, the top and bottom pic appear to be from the same event.  In the bottom one, Alva is all the way to the right.  Same shirt and helmet as in the pic with Kent and Kent sure looks like he has the same shirt on.
