We, at Standup Journal, are standing with much of the paddling and surfing world today as we send positive, healing thoughts to young Noah Yap and his family.
Word came out last night that Noah Yap has sustained a severe head trauma while skateboarding on Maui. While the details are unclear, Noah’s brother Taylor reported on his Facebook page that when Noah fell he hit his head and had a seizure.
He gave further information that validated that although Noah definitely cracked his skull, there is NO bleeding happening on the brain and the neurosurgeon feels he will be ok.
At 7:00AM this morning, Tyler reports that his brother is awake with a screaming headache but doing fine.
He says: “Hi everyone. He’s miraculously awake. No bleed on his brain. He’s sick and throwing up with a greatly head ache. But that’s amazing considering everything. The neurosurgeon feels comfortable allowing him to heal at home- with the skull fracture. Thank you all for your prayers!”
