Man Helps Paralyzed Woman Achieve A Seemingly Impossible Dream
Pascale Honore was paralyzed in a car accident, but that didn't stop her from dreaming of surfing, especially as she watched her sons learn the sport in the oceans of Australia.
Little did she know a stranger with some duct tape would help her achieve her dream.
Tyron Swan, a now 24-year old friend of her sons and a professional diver, thought he could help.
Swan and Honore hit the beach with a roll of duct tape and an idea. Using a backpack and a roll of the strong tape, Swan was able to rig a harness for Honore that MacGuyver would be proud of. They hit the waves for the first time in December 2012, and documented their journey in the 2013 short film, Duct Tape Surfing, and a follow-up is in the works as the duo take on bigger and bigger waves together.
Unfortunately, Pascale Honore died tragically a few years later, but she was able to inspire so many with her story!
