Long Island windsurfer Frank Messina passed away suddenly last week. Great guy, ambassador of the sport, organizer of beach cleanups. On a personal note the first person I ever saw carve a jibe. He was loved, and he will be missed.

FYI.

Thank you for sharing. I'm very sorry for your loss, it sounds like he had a good life with a lot of good influence on others.

He sounds like one of those few who make a profound difference in your life without realizing it. As dcharlton, I, too am sorry for your loss.

I read the account of your first meeting and it's like the Wayback Machine of how it was for so many of us in that time. More cams, flatter bottoms - it must be fast until that one day you see somebody sailing a curved line instead of straight and your world changes.

I hope we all find our Frank and Lauralee whether it be windsurfing or any other walk in life.
