Andrew Johns hailed from South Africa and was one of the keenest watersports men in Cape Town. He was also a board shaper for a living and had recently married with a new son.

Andrew was up in the mountains with his wife and son, when he slipped and fell 100 metres.

Winter is a hard time for board manufacturers and Jessica is now facing life without Andrew and a deep financial mess. Andrew was a fun loving care-free young man with his life ahead of him and didn\'t plan to move on so soon. There is a large void left by Andrew and his family needs financial help whilst finding their feet. If you are in a position to help, albeit a small amount, please take some time to do so as many have expressed a wish to do.

Andrew Johns 2nd July 1976 – 5th August 2007
