Dukes Surf Fest 2013
The Dukes Ocean Fest this year was a phenomenal success. AccesSurf had an amazing array of talent for adaptive surfing divisions. I entered in the prone division and placed second overall. It was my second time ever surfing solo. I was afforded the amazing opportunity to ride the late John Ross-Duggan’s prototype “Banana board” and wet suit. I surfed ala John with duct tape across my chin for protection while paddling. John was a pioneer to adaptive surfing and an expert water-man.
My heat went well, I paddled strong and sat on the outside catching the biggest and longest rides. I got at least 6 good waves in my 30 min heat. I was able to load myself back on board almost entirely when I’d wipe out which is pretty amazing for a quadriplegic. It was a really great event and in the end everyone were winners! Aloha
