The man, identified as Malvern resident Peter John Surman, was surfing Kuta Reef Friday when two fellow surfers reportedly found him unconscious and unresponsive in the surf line.
Lifeguards on jet skis brought the man ashore and attempted CPR before transporting him to Bali International Medical Center for further treatment where he was pronounced dead two hours later.

Denpasar Marine Police Chief I Wayan Redip said that the victim appeared to suddenly fall unconscious or faint and believed that the victim suffered from some form of medical emergency.

According to Chief Redip, the victim, who was on holiday with his wife, was alone at the time of the incident.
The body of the man is currently at Sanglah General Hospital awaiting an autopsy.
