News of Per Andersson’s passing has come as a shock to us all here in Lancelin Western Australia. Per was a regular visitor and sometimes resident here in Lancelin. He will be sadly missed. Any details on what happened appreciated.

Per was a regular/resident of Lancelin, Western Australia. Per would always show up when least expected, whether to help test boards, have a sail or bring the whole entourage around for Christmas day festivities. We will miss those visits and one of the "originals" has left us. On behalf of the Lano crew, we would like to express our sadness and sympathy tohis family on his passing. A legend in the windsurfing community has gone too soon.

Why is the cause of death such a mystery? Was it drugs? I ask this with all due respect.

He died of a heartattack in his home in Thailand.

Goodness gracious!! Let him rest in peace and leave him alone! Why the morbid curiousity!? Obviously not a good friend or you would not go there- go find something else to occupy your insensitive head!!

Why the morbid curiousity!?

Morbid curisousty?

what is wrong with asking how someone died?
was he murdered?
drug overdose?
car accident?
natural cause?

there is nothing wrong in asking!

I don't know anything about him except what I have read in Memorial. However, any untimely death deserves attention. Any athlete that dies of a heart attack before his time incites curiousity.

Bit of a wake up call as Per was the same age as myself and I hear it was a heart attack.

I am sorry to hear loss of such a good athlete and someone dedicated for windsurfing. But I am also curious if his unfortunate death was natural or windsurfing related since if the latter is the case, it may teach us to prevent some unforeseen events.

RIP Bro If you think that's a wake-up call, wait until you reach your late 50's and realize that you have survived all these guys who were in better shape than you and are dropping off like flies due to heart attacks when they were younger than you.

RIP ..

Just wanted to pay my respects to the person who actually got me seriously into windsurfing. THANKS PER! Hopefully where you are there are perfect conditions with mas high waves and no one crowding you.

Thanks bro!
