One of last year's attendees was a brazilian guy named Carlos Burle. Oh, you've heard of him? Well, last year he sat in a group of his peers and learned CPR, thinking that it might come in handy one day. Last month he found himself using that CPR on his tow partner Maya Gabeira in an effort that helped save her life. All the vest and the skis in the world can't make up for that kind of education.
