11.4.: The Moroccan superstyler Boujmaa Guilloul had a bad wipe-out at Hookipa. After crashing a big move, looks like Boujmaa tried a triple loop, he knocked himself out, and started sinking soon after. The Austrian freestyle windsurfer Michi Rossmeier writes: “That was the highest jump i’ve ever seen – and rotating into a triple then – you are crazy!!!” Klaas Voget and Ferdinando Loffreda, were immediately there to help in the water.
Boujmaa is now in hospital and has to stay overnight there. Preliminary damage report includes water in his lungs, a cut lip with stitches and a concussion.
Now a support Facebook account was set up to help Boujmaa in covering the hospital costs, which will be around $10.000 for the Emergency room and treatments.
More details will follow on that account: Boujmaa “triple loop” accident support page
Get well soon!!!
