There is nothing more exhilarating than gliding on a perfect wave and then plunging into the cold water of the Atlantic. For me, surfing is all about learning how to overcome failure, because when you wipe out you don’t get out of the water. You go back in and you catch the next wave with determination. I love this sport because it reminds me that standing up isn’t nearly as important as learning how to fall and get up again. A lesson that resonates in every part of my life.

Be inspired: Check out the teaser of the documentary “The Most Fearless” which shares the powerful story of Nasima Akter, Bangladesh’s first female surfer, who is challenging her community’s conservative social norms and making waves!
