Duke’s Surf Contest Training

I had an amazing training session at John Ross-Duggan’s yesterday for an upcoming Dukes surf contest in Waikiki. John is a legendary waterman who pioneered big wave charging for adaptive surfing. His sister Robin extended the generous opportunity of trying out and using Johns prototype surfboards and wetsuits for Dukes contest.

The surfboard was phenomenal and extremely high performance. The wetsuit offered extreme ease of movement and swimming too. We dialed in positioning and board transfers for wipeouts. There were experts and master waterman present who offered the greatest of knowledge and advice. I learned much that day and had so much fun. It was one of the most amazing days of my life!
