  • Glad was an honor to have joined Surfing Medicine International on their endeavor to heal the world. It was a fantastic experience. It was great to find news waves in a world where waves can be a bit crowded. The uniqueness was to visit a people where they have never seen anyone surf a wave and to construct to traditional wood boards then paddle out and ride them with the native people. One word AWESOME!
