      Claudio Silva, well known creator of kitefury.com, kiteboarding
      videographer
      and self-employed computer consultant was lofted and severely
      injured while
      kiteboarding in Miami, FL, USA last week on New Year's Eve.

      Claudio Silva's creation - http://kitefury.com/

      Claudio is hospitalized with:

      - Paralysis in both legs below the knee
      - A broken back
      - A skull fracture
      - 6 broken ribs among other injuries.

      We are hopeful that he will walk again and fully recover but only
      time will
      tell.

      Claudio's road to recovery will no doubt be long, and,
      unfortunately, he has
      no medical insurance. To help out Claudio and his new wife, Eva, his
      friends
      have organized an amazing fundraising event!!

      On Saturday January 15th, at 5pm, there will be a Seafood Paella and
      Sangria
      cookout at the North Miami home of Master Chef and Kiteboarder Luco
      Romero.
      In addition to delicious food and a great crowd, there will be a
      raffle and
      silent auction, all to raise money for Claudio! This
      benefit/cookout/raffle
      is shaping up to be a must attend kiteboarding event for all Florida
      riders!
      People will be driving in from all over!!

      Chef Luco takes a rack of ribs out to Fred Flintstone's car!

      The raffle and auction items are outstanding: kites, clothing, gear,
      tasty
      beverages, gorgeous gift baskets, restaurant gift certificates, yoga
      classes, martial arts classesÂ… And the list is growing!!!

      (Even if you cannot attend the cookout, you can still buy raffle
      tickets!!
      When you send your donation via PayPal or check (see below), just
      send an
      extra $20.00 per raffle ticket and indicate it in the comments
      section! It's
      that easy!)

      Claudio's kiteboarding video work and commericial DVDs will be
      digitally
      projected on the big screen to bring kiteboarding even more into
      focus at
      this special event.

      Claudio is known for his excellent taste in music and collection
      which will
      be played for the enjoyment of all throughout the evening.

      Cookout and raffle details appear in the next post.
