Anything is Possible

In 1995, a car accident left Pascale Honore paraplegic. She would watch her son and his friends surf, dreaming of a day where she could join them, missing the pull of the ocean so much.

In 2013, one of her son's friends, Tyron Swan, got a wild idea. "Let's duct tape you to my back and paddle out."

Insane. Some say stupid. Outrageous, senseless, reckless, and most damning of all, impossible . . . and in one of the most awesome and inspiring acts I have ever heard of, Duct Tape Surfing was born. A paraplegic woman and a loving young man proving to all of us that anything is possible.

We all miss Pascale so much. I never actually knew her but was friends with her on Facebook and loved her for who she was, such an inspiration to myself and millions around the world. See my tribute to the loss of one of the greatest sisters of the tides here.
