This is Me… (Before the Accident… Obviously)

This is Me... (Before the Accident... Obviously)

Before my accident I spent most of my time on the water. Here is a picture of me when I was able bodied. This is called wake surfing. You get on a boat with a large wake and start on this small surfboard. You’re holding onto a short rope and you then pull yourself in front of the wake. Once you get some momentum going you throw the rope into the boat and then surf the wave. You can surf until the boat runs out of gas. The longest I ever lasted before my legs gave out was 8 1/2 min. It’s actually not very tough to learn and the boat is going very slow so it is not dangerous. Another reason you should get out on the water!
