When Pascale Honore was left paralysed in a car accident 18 years ago she had to ‘relearn to live a different way’ and accept ‘suddenly all the things I loved doing I couldn’t do anymore.’ But now the wheelchair bound 50-year-old, has been given a new lease of life after discovering the joy of surfing thanks to her son’s friend. He takes to the waves with her strapped to his back with duct tape.

This video highlights how an accident can change everything.  It shows that determination, a plan, teamwork, and support are all of importance in a time of need. It also highlights that just because things don’t turn out the way you expected, it doesn’t mean you can’t still achieve the goals which are important to you.
