A Tribute to Andrew Johns

From ikiteboarding.com:

Andrew Johns. Husband, Father, Kiter, Windsurfer, Surfer and a super nice guy. Born 2 July 1976 and passed away on 5 August 2007 when he slipped on a mountain in Ceres and fell 150m down a Gorge.

I will remember Andrew as a humble, polite and funny guy who was always a pleasure to be around with. He was incredibly funny and didn’t have a bad or aggressive bone in his body. He never said anything bad about anyone.

While doing an article on him and his company I was busy taking pictures of him. He interrupted me and said – “please take some pictures of the other workers in the factory, they are just as important as I am.” When he moved down from Jeffreys Bay to Cape Town to establish Xelerator Kiteboarding in Cape Town (with nearly no money in his pocket) he brought down Richard – a poor black man who was previously unemployed. Andrew paid for his housing and gave him a car. He always put others before himself.
