On the September 2014 Fistral Beach clean I was compelled to stop and watch this rather large group being taught to surf and I wondered if surfing would change any of their lives.
I was 29 years old when I took up surfing and it changed my life as it did to some of those close to me. In a short period of time the house in Essex was sold and the job in the City of London was left behind. A six month around the world surfing trip was followed by settling in Newquay, Cornwall. Surfing has since been a significant factor in my life.
As Utah was told in the film Point Break; “Surfin’s the source. It’ll change your life. Swear to God.”
