Aaron Hadlow has suffered a knee injury, while shooting for a new short movie, in the beginning of February. The British kiteboarding magician has hit a kicker and went for a sizeable "Mobe 5".
He landed a little over the front and collapsed his right knee. "I was shooting for the RedBull Media House with a Phantom Camera. We were stepping up the level with some 2500 frames per second super slow motion action", explains Aaron Hadlow.
"Kiteboarding has become more and more technical as the years have gone on so I thought the Phantom would be ideal to show every detail and movement so that it’s possible for the brain to process just what is going on".
The world kiteboarding champion tore the ACL in half and took a few major tears through both medial and lateral Meniscus.
"Thanks to the RedBull team in the UK I have got some of the world’s best specialists treating me. I cannot thank them enough for all the help and support they have given me for the best possible chance of a full recovery", Hadlow adds.
One of the best knee surgeons in the world will be operating Aaron Hadlow. The specialist deals with the top premiership football players. It's still too early to know when will Aaron Hadlow get back to the water, but one thing's certain. "I’ll be back before you know it".
