NHKitesurfer dies in Mexico in December

Postby NHKitesurfer » Tue Mar 21, 2017 11:14 pm

Probably noticed that I have not been on the forum in a while and the reason being in December while on vacation in Mexico I died. If you want to read more about it you can visit my Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/joe.sharron/po ... 9430363441 or for those not on Facebook you can go to http://www.joesharronchallenge.com/
On the Facebook page you will find some amazing videos from Cape Town at KOTA from Lewis, Lenten and Nick.

I am on the road to recovery but unfortunately will not be kitesurfing for a long long time. I wish you all many amazing sessions and hope to join you in the future.

Cheers,
Joe

Joe, sorry to hear about your accident.

Big respect for not giving up and pushing the odds, wishing you all the best with every beat of my heart.

I do look forward to the days with positive news from your side...

Fingers crossed for your fight.

Now go and kick some ass!

Hope you get better man

Remember, the doctors don't always know what's best. Keep on trying to move your limbs and don't ever give up.

I've heard a few stories of people with paralysis beat it because they kept moving as much as they could and would not quit trying.

Best...

that sucks NHK. Like everyone else I'm hoping you recover and can kite again some day. I take it you never figured out what went wrong that day. Thanks for sharing.
