The next time you find yourself wrapped in layer after layer of warm woolens, shivering from a bitter wind and thinking that the overhead surf is just too much given the butterflies bouncing around in your stomach, think of the following quote by big wave hellman, Mark Healey:
If there's a snowball's chance in hell that something's possible, then I expect myself to be able to do it.
And kiss your candy-ass excuses good-bye, throw on your beloved wetsuit, booties and gloves and paddle out through the ice-cream headache enducing maelstrom waiting for you just beyond the shoreline.
Check out the April 2011 issue of Surfing Magazine for the full interview with Healey. Great words that'll make you charge harder.
