Our eyes filled up with tears as we heard the news! After a 4 year battle with cancer Andy Buchanan, former PWA press officer, passed away yesterday. Just last year he has teamed up with PWA photographer John Carter and founded Open/Shut calendars to produce the PWA windsurfing calendars. We always had good talks and laughs with Andy at the events.


“My health has taken another turn for the worse. It is a real pain in the ass, but such is life”. (Andrew, 12.12.2012). Such is life. Unfortunately true.


Two years ago we did an interview with Andy about his battle with cancer and his work for the PWA. Andy about windsurfing: “Coming from the UK where there aren’t trade or thermal winds, I’d say windsurfing’s like dating a super model: you can only sleep with once a month. It’s amazing but you can never get enough of it.”


Enjoy your final ride, because this one never ends!
