Pascale Honore is a 50 year-old paralegic mother living in Elliston, South Australia. Two decades ago, a car accident would leave her wheelchair-bound for the rest of her life, but Honore wouldn't let that stop her from enjoying her life. Before the accident, Honore had hiked thrpugh Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, and Indonesia, and picked grapes in the Southern Vales. When a friend of her sons, Tyron Swan, 23 year-old professional surfer, suggested an insane idea – strapping Pascale on his back while he surfed– she was game. They tried it out, and she was hooked. Now, the unusual team is busy perfecting their combined surfing routine, and they now plan to continue conquering even bigger waves along the Australian coast. Video below.
