Daniel Bobis, a math teacher and coach at Long Beach High School, was killed in a surfing accident off Indonesia.

Local fishermen say they found the body of an American surfer who went missing last weekend in waters off western Indonesia.

Daniel Bobis apparently hit another surfer's board after emerging from the barrel of a powerful, 10-foot (3 meter) wave. His leash broke and his board washed to shore.

Andri, a member of the search and rescue team, said local fishermen found his body Thursday about 20 miles (30 kilometers) from where he'd last been seen.

Thirty-two-year-old Bobis was a math teacher and coach at Long Beach High School in New York.

He had been vacationing with his wife, Rachel, on Sumatra island. She did not wish to comment.

Bobis' Facebook page was flooded with condolences.
