Throwback Thursday: Sydney for the Start

Some of my favorite moments to start 2015 happened in Australia. Fortunately, I was able to hop on Carissa’s first surf competitions of the year at Manly Beach and the Gold Coast. Being able to live behind the scenes of a professional surfer in her element was a unique and special experience. The mental and physical game when approaching and being amidst the contest heats altered the way I view not only athlete life but the competitive landscape that any everyday individual can go through.

Here’s a fun clip with a small cameo of me and a little roo made by the amazing Peter King.
