Martín Passeri, a multiple-time Argentinian surfing champion, has deliberately lost a heat to surf a wave with a paraplegic.
The surfer was ready to conquer his sixth national title. Nicolás Gallegos has always dreamed of being a surfer. But after suffering an accident 20 years ago, he could no longer stand up on a surfboard.
A decisive heat was about to kick off. Martin had already put his jersey on. His opponents paddled out, but Passeri decided to change the course of his professional career.
