This is the kind of posts I hate doing.
French windsurfer/surfer Baptiste Gossein has suffered a serious accident while surfing Teahupoo in Tahiti where he recently moved. Here's a short article about the accident.
Surfing (and windsurfing and kitesurfing and so on) give us incredible joy and stoke and love for life, but sometimes they take their toll. We all know that it's part of the game and it can happen anytime to anyone, but when it happens to a friend of yours, it's definitely harder to swallow.
Baptiste's Maui friends will be gathering this Sunday at 4pm at Hookipa to take some pictures to send him to comfort him. I'm in Italy and I can't be there, but I send Baptiste my best wishes for a successful healing.
Good luck, brother.
