Sad day for watersports

Steve Schafer, a kite boarder, died from a shark attack off Stuart beach. My condolences to his family and friends.
Dino told me that Steve used to windsurf but that was before I took up the sport. Our paths crossed a couple times, once Steve and his friend Scott fished me out of the river when I broke a boom.
James Douglass, a marine biologist, who windsurfs at the Ft Pierce inlet has an interesting post on his blog.

Steve was a great guy and will be missed. There is a memorial for Steve organized by his friends at the south side of the Stuart Beach on Saturday at 11am according to Palm Beach Post. Hope it's windy up there Steve.
