One of the fastest windsurfers on this planet and perhaps one of the most driven and dedicated to their sport, Alberto Menegatti has passed away, aged 29.
It is with a heavy, and shocked, heart that we bring this sad news to you. Still very little information available but Boardseeker is aware that Menegatti was found in his room in Tenerife unconscious, he was very quickly pronounced dead and a full autopsy will be taking place sometime today. Meanwhile we plan to bring all the latest information on this sudden and tragic event right here on Boardseeker.
*UPDATE* – Still very little information available as of yet but it appears that Menegatti may have passed away from natural causes. We will bring more as we know it.
For now we have a short gallery and a couple of Alberto’s most recent videos to remember him by.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends and the Lake Garda windsurfing community.
