Duct Tape Surfing from Mark Tipple on Vimeo.

Eighteen years ago a slight lapse in concentration crushed Pascale’s dreams of surfing. With the help of a family friend and a roll of duct tape, she can now call herself a surfer.

Today’s Video of the Week was shot bu Mark Tipple who many of you may know for his underway film making around the Eastern Suburbs beaches.

This is a truly inspiring and rather quirky story about overcoming the odds and experiencing the best life has to offer despite a disability.

  2. Pascale has inspired me to get off my behind, literally, and make use of the many boards I have AND legs and get surfing! Stop procrastinating!

    God Bless you Pascale and family!!
