(Video link here.) To give his quadriplegic friend, Pascale Honore, the experience of surfing, Ty Swan, rigged a simple Kmart backpack (with leg holes cut out) to be a harness with which he could carry Pascale. Then he strapped her onto his back with duct tape. The video, pure gumption, valor and generosity, had us in tears.
We were just sitting around one night having a few beers when I thought, `yeah, I reckon I could surf with Pascale on my back’.
Everyone said we were crazy. Even the loosest people I know said we were crazy.
It’s one of the coolest uses of duct tape we’ve seen.
