The young woman has published in her official Instagram account a preview of the documentary she has recorded about her recovery process after the serious accident she suffered in July 2018 on the coast of France.
Garazi Sánchez is a 27-year-old Basque professional surfer. Last summer she suffered an accident surfing on the coast of France that left her on the shore without being able to move her legs and, as she herself has, with her head moving more than ever.
“In that ambulance to the hospital, unable to move my legs and thinking that I couldn’t do it anymore, I passed what were surely the worst hours of my life,” Garazi said.
“In that ambulance I spent the worst hours of my life”
And it was in that same ambulance where his path of uncertainty and decisions began. Garazi says that the motto was always that everything they could control was well done and the rest, that luck fell on their side.
“I spent ten months away from the sea and even further from the excitement of putting on a lycra. Going through a spine operation, with the fear that generated me; crossing the door of the operating room, without knowing how it would come out; learn to walk again, “she explained.
The surfer will be the protagonist of a documentary that will be broadcast shortly in which the recovery process of the young woman is shown after her accident. Finally I can show you the teaser of a documentary about my passage during the whole process, my doubts and, above all, some fears that I didn’t even know, “he announced on his Instagram account with a preview of the piece.
Now, Garazi says he is back more prepared than ever to face the new challenges and opportunities. He has his mind set on the next championship and, above all, on getting the place for Tokyo 2020 that he is so eager to achieve.
Full message of Garazi on her Instagram
On July 18, 2018 I had an accident surfing in France that left me on the shore without being able to move my legs and with my head moving more than ever. In that ambulance to the hospital, unable to move my legs and thinking that I could not do more, I passed those that were probably the worst hours of my life.
There began a long road full of uncertainty and decisions, as well as a lot of faith in my team, at work and in discipline. Our motto was: “That everything we can control is well done, and in the rest … may luck fall on our side.” I spent ten months away from the sea and even farther from the excitement of putting on a Lycra, going through a spine operation, with the fear that generated me; through the door of the operating room, not knowing how it would come out; learn to walk again … I promised myself that I would only speak loudly about this when I was already a part from my past, a mania that I have to think that, when things are spoken too much, the solution takes longer to arrive. I can finally show you the teaser of a documentary about my passage during the whole process, the first championship with the @fesuring in the European,
I AM BACK AND more prepared than ever to face this new season, which is full of challenges and opportunities. With eyes on daily work, in the next championship and dreaming of getting that place to # Tokyo2020.
