surf hero

2/2/17

Good afternoon.

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”

All I can think of when I read the above is that loving yourself gives you both. Invest your heart and time wisely and remember that self-care is not selfish.

Happy Thursday

Google Doodle Honors Duke Kahanamoku, the Father of Surfing

Known as the Ambassador of Aloha, Kahanamoku traveled the world, bringing surfing to the likes of California, Australia and New Zealand over his lifetime. Aug. 24 marks what would’ve been Kahanamoku’s 125th birthday — he passed away in 1968.

In Hawaii, Kahanamoku is known for much more… a swimming champion, winning five Olympic medals over the course of his career. His success also enabled him to raise the profile of Hawaii’s true passion of surfing.

Kahanamoku was also elected the sheriff of his home county 13 times and starred in over a dozen movies. Most importantly, he is credited with helping the Hawaiian islands achieve statehood in 1959.

Happy Birthday!!!

Needless to say that this lady pictured has been my hero for quite a long time. Today, she made history, once again by winning the legendary Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach for the third time in a row. 

Carissa is the best surfer in the world and to be honest, I don’t think anyone can stop her now. Not only she’s number 1 but she’s also the most humble and bubbly human being I have had the opportunity to meet, and it’s amazing to see her two sides during the competitions as she takes on a deadly approach while in heats and an adorable person on land. Kinda hard to hate her, right?

I’m still mesmerized by what this girl is able to do and the thing is, she’s not even started yet.

Thank you Carissa for continuing to inspiring me everyday in my daily life. You’re an absolute legend.

PS: Since you wrote a letter back to me, you still haven’t lost an event, just saying. Haa.

Carissa Moore: 'I Don't Feel Imprisoned By Food Anymore'
Three-time surfing world champion Carissa Moore has always felt insecure about her body, despite her athletic success. She's now in a good place and wants other women to know they aren't alone.

Share it around! Carissa is my biggest inspiration and she’s talking about something that is an issue around the world. 

So glad to see her speak up about her experience of being insecure, turning it around and end up at the top of the world!
