Duct Tape Surfing started when Ty said he could surf with me (Pascale) taped to his back.


I have been in a wheelchair for 18 years after a car accident left me a T4 paraplegic. The first time I saw the ocean I was mesmerized and just wanted to live by the water. My two sons have grown up surfing, and watching them has made me want to get in the waves with them. It wasn't until Ty's suggestion that I could feel what it's like to be a surfer.

Since December we have been surfing a lot, using a backpack bought from K-Mart and a roll of duct tape; we even made the front page of the Sunday Mail!

Since the media ran the story we have been overwhelmed with encouragement and emails of gratitude for showing that it is possible to reach your dreams regardless of any limitations.

We created a Facebook page to show what we've been up to, and to share our enthusiasm for a life of adventure.

Soon, we'll be hitting the road on our "Leggless Summer" trip, heading to Western Australia in search of bigger waves, to continue to inspire people to have a dream and make it happen!

The destination is Kalbarri, where we have planned to meet up with pro surfer Ry Craike and tag along with his "Fish Out Of Water" adventures, and to discover a new part of the world which I have been thinking of for some time.

The money raised will go towards fixing our home on the road, ready for the trip, and for our ongoing promotion of living the life you love.

Ty is a big wave surfer and professional diver who recently admitted he's addicted to surfing, add travel into the passion and we're set for a fun ride. He also plays the sax.

Join us as we bring our Duct Tape Surfing antics to the World, through the road trip and online www.ducttapesurfing.com
