June 3, 2013: Paraplegic surfs



Pascale Honore, 50, was left a paraplegic after a car accident resulted in a T4 spinal cord injury 18 years ago. But she always loved watching her sons surf in the waves of Elliston, South Australia and was saddened that she couldn't surf herself.

That's when local surfer Tyron Swan figured he could surf with her duct taped to his back. Damn if they didn't pull it off.

"I just remember looking up and seeing the colours in the wave, hearing that sound ... it was all over too soon," said Honore.

Now they're continuing to surf this way and developing an act.

Death wish, or what ?

Next month, they take on the trampoline.

That's cool! Good for him.



Clodfobble  Monday Jun 3 01:29 PM

He has to be an excellent surfer, to be able to balance the both of them, and swim them both to the surface when they wipe out. Pretty brave.



glatt  Monday Jun 3 01:36 PM

well, her arms work, don't they? Swimming is probably 75% arms.



orthodoc  Monday Jun 3 04:25 PM

Yes, but they're duct-taped together in a manner that doesn't look very conducive to swimming. It strikes me as a huge risk, but I'm not a surfer.

I would assume they had a cadre of support people with boats, floats, and personal watercraft.

Totally not what I was expecting. I read Paraplegic "smurfs". I am disappointed.
