KW - PHOTOS OF THE YEAR

Lasse Walker, wielding his kitesabre in a Dutch autumn storm, Scheveningen

PHOTO: Ydwer van der Heide - see below: on 4th February, Ydwer was surf foiling near home at Noordwijk in the Netherlands when his foil hit the ground and he was thrown forward. Landing on his head he crushed the C6 vertebra in his spine. Unable to move in the water he was rescued by the friends he was surfing with and rushed to hospital by paramedics where he was immediately taken into theatre. Showing immense determination and spirit in the incredibly tough weeks and months that followed, Ydwer has been focused on getting behind the camera again. From his special all-terrain wheelchair, and with a specially customised camera mount, he's recently been proving once again why he's one of the best lensmen in the biz! Ydwer continues to amaze everyone with his physical victories, from one day to the next!
