LEWIS CRATHERN – BACK FROM THE BRINK

Posted by  Craig Sawyer   in       2 years ago  

Lewis Crathern suffered one of the worst wipeouts we’ve ever seen in kiteboarding, certainly in competition. Dropping backwards out of the sky during a massive mega loop during the Red Bull King of the Air, the British three time champion was knocked out and took on lots of water to his lungs as fellow riders and rescue crews pulled him into the beach. He was induced into a coma for a week in hospital, but thankfully has made an good recovery. During his week unconscious in the hospital Lewis had some wild dreams while fans sent him many messages of support. He tells us about his experiences, his recovery and how grateful he is to all those who contacted him with their good wishes in this chapter.
