Fantastic Disabled Kayak Surf Film [Inspiration]

Disabled Surf Kayaker

Take 5 minutes and watch this amazing and very inspirational short film called, "Birthright" directed by Sean Mullens.

The description on Vimeo is:
[blockquote]One man's struggle to transcend.

This humble film is about a friend of mine named Michael and his daily ritual to find his natural self through surfing.[/blockquote]
The director, Sean Mullens posted an interesting comment over on the video site, “One interesting fact is that the place where we filmed him entering the water was the exact location he broke his neck and became disabled 30 years ago. He told me that time and time again he finds himself at that spot on earth without intention of being there...it is one of his favorite places to be.”

I was completely blown away by this film and I know that you will be as well.

Special thanks for Keith over at Go Kayak Now! for sharing the video with us first.
