There was the situation I always tried to avoid…hitting the reef face-first at a very remote place, 6 hours drive to the next hospital. My lip split, a cut on my nose and some minor scratches, but I was in luck though.

Anthony was also on a surf trip in South Sumatra, one of you guys that help out wherever you are. I am deeply grateful that he stitched my lip literally on-the-spot in such a professional way. The instructions he gave me how to keep the lip clean were as valuable as the stitching itself, since the wound on the lip should definitely be prevented from any infection. So he saved my surf trip. Even after 5 days I could take the stitches out when the surf was pumping again.

I thank you for the help, hope to seeing you again and keep this great initiative up!
