The kitesurfing community here is nothing short of amazing. They were kind enough to put on a charity benefit for me this past weekend on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. They made a very nice video which I'm sure everybody will appreciate.

Hey Joe,

One of your buddies already posted the video! They feel about you, obviously (hope that's a normal phrase in this context, English is not my first language).

Regards, or6

Joe, you are a true inspiration. A lot of people would give up and just feel sorry for themselves, but you obviously get it. Seems like you have a wonderful family and network of friends, and that is the most important thing in the world. Best of luck in your continued recovery and keep up the positive attitude. Again, you are truly an inspiration!

Thanks for the kind words. I was lucky enough to have Nick Jacobsen and the CEO of WOO Sports Leo Koenig visit with me today. I am grateful for the friends I have and those I will make tomorrow.
