Duct-tape Surfing

Pascale Honore has been in a wheelchair for 18 years after a car accident left her a T4 paraplegic.

“The first time I saw the ocean I was mesmerized and just wanted to live by the water. My two sons have grown up surfing, and watching them has made me want to get in the waves with them. It wasn’t until Ty (Tyron Swan – a son’s friend, big wave surfer and professional diver) suggested that I could feel what it’s like to be a surfer. We have been surfing a lot, using a backpack bought from K-Mart and a roll of duct tape.”
