British kiteboarder Lewis Crathern is in a medically-induced coma after suffering a horrendous wipeout at the Red Bull King of the Air 2016, held in Cape Town, South Africa.
The 31-year-old kiteboarder free fell nearly 20 meters (65 feet) and crashed into the water. Apparently, Lewis Crathern didn't suffer any brain damage, broken bones or internal injuries, but he had problems breathing.
San Sebastian's surf cluster is a city-driven, new-generation type of cluster policy that connects apparently unrelated activities around a common theme: surf.
By choosing a theme rather than a specific sector, the cluster initiative refrains from "picking winners" and opens new opportunities for economic diversification that make use of specific local strengths: gastronomy, hospitality, natural urban resources, IT-digital competences and engineering skills.
This case makes clear that nurturing an economy around a theme or lifestyle requires an integrated platform approach, flexibility of intervention, and involvement of stakeholders and unusual suspects.
