Slater has, for twenty years, been in a committed relationship with mega company Quiksilver. They have taken on the surfing world together and dominated it. No
The BioSync Team's insight:

I feel like an ambassador for surfing at this point. I'm happy to go and play that role and share that where I can in certain areas of the mainstream media that doesn't get the surfing attention.

THE SURFBOARD SCHOLAR

THE SURFBOARD SCHOLAR | Surfing | Scoop.it
The BioSync Team's insight:

Yes, California is for surfers! Vintage board collector, waterman and surfboard scholar a.k.a. Kristopher Tom, scours SoCal on the weekends for surfboards from the late '70s and '80s: brightly colored twin fins, neon shorties and faded longboards. Once he amasses 150 boards, he hosts a SURFBOARD Palooza to unload them. If he doesn’t have something you like, tell him what you’re looking for, and he’ll keep his eyes peeled.

A Paralyzed Surfer Shares His Story: It's Always Overhead For Me | The Inertia

A Paralyzed Surfer Shares His Story: It's Always Overhead For Me | The Inertia | Surfing | Scoop.it
I'm a paralyzed surfer. I wasn't always paralyzed. The funny thing is, when I got paralyzed they told me I would never surf again – along with a huge list of other things that I would never do.
The BioSync Team's insight:

From the article:  I heard a voice in my head. “If you want to throw in the towel, I understand. It’s OK,” it said. “I understand that you think your life is over and nothing good can come out of it. But before you throw it away, think about something. At this moment you are drowning in fear and uncertainty. If you get back to living in the moment, have faith, and stop looking at everything as being problems without answers, you are going to have a great life.”

7 Things I Learned About Life That I Learned From Surfing

7 Things I Learned About Life That I Learned From Surfing | Surfing | Scoop.it

Surfing is not just a sport, it’s a perspective. It’s a way of life. Yes, that sounds dramatic, but hear me out. Surfing has taught me lessons about life that I haven’t learned anywhere else.


Via Bobby Dillard
The BioSync Team's insight:

Too many people operate under the delusion of competition, when the most helpful stance is collaboration. Don’t make the mistake of getting competitive when other people just want to help you. Don’t be the jerk who’s pushing others out of the way when those people would freely give it to you.

It’s a culture that blurs age gaps, gender gaps, language barriers, cultural barriers and pretty much any other barrier you can think of. Surfing is a culture of students and teachers."
