It’s with extreme sadness that we learned today of the passing of Bent Ulrik Niss.
Many of you know Bent as an amazing human being with who we are all grateful to have crossed paths as we shared time with him on this earth. He was an avid paddler and member of our community and driven to learn, improve, and help others. Details of Bent’s passing are posted from his wife on his Facebook timeline.

The funeral will take place Friday, the 15th of January. Bents ashes will be spread on the waters of the fjord where he spent so much time training and competing at a later to be announced date with the possibility of joining on the water on sup- or surfboard. Here is the original story, posted on Facebook:

We are awaiting information/instructions on how to contribute/memorate Bent with a donation instead of sending flowers for the funeral from his club where he paddled, Nordjydsk Windsurfingklub

Bent was loved dearly and will be missed.

Paddle on, Bent.
