So you think you can’t surf

Anyone who thinks they can’t surf should really read the story of Melbourne-born (like me) Nick Vujicic. He was born without arms or legs. He first came to my attention when Hawaiian surfer Bethany Hamilton taught him to surf. Bethany is no stranger to adversity either. You may know her already if you’re interested in surfing. If not, I suggest you look her up because she’s an incredibly inspiring young woman.

So Nick learned to surf…and he had no arms…and no legs, yet nothing has stopped him physically or emotionally enjoying his life. So your size surely should not matter, and it doesn’t. I love surfing so much that I think everybody should be blessed enough to experience it. Nothing beats the crystal clear blue water moving you along and allowing you to ride it; it’s an unforgettable experience that nobody should feel excluded from.
