Free Book
.
I wrote this book in the hope that my experiences and knowledge might help someone in some way. I am truly touched when I hear how it has positively enhanced people’s mindset or in some cases lifestyle. If you would like this book, or you know someone who might, please write something you live by, a quote, a daily mantra, something that keeps you focused on your path in the comments below and feel free to tag someone if you think they might like it. Let’s see if we can all learn something new from each other cos at the end of the day we are all here together.  Love it or hate it, we are on the same boat and rowing together can better keep us all afloat against the tide.  So, let’s be having it, your best quotes, your mantras, lyrics, the things you live by and give you strength from within. It might be from someone famous, it might be from your father, it might be your own words etc
.
On Sunday night I will pick someone and send them the book…
.
For me, I write specific quotes on my surf boards, in my phone, and on pieces of paper on my desk.  I even alter them to short abbreviation’s and write them on my boards that I use in big surf so that the jumble of letters takes my concentration away from the self doubt that tries to creep in when I’m facing giant seas in the North Atlantic.  The third picture in the sequence above is my open ocean paddle board that I used to cross between Ireland and Scotland, the letters are badly worn off from my beard and slabbers rubbing on them as I paddled 😂😋🤭
How to Enter... Anyone can enter from anywhere in the world
.
Write in the comments your favourite quote, daily mantra or phrase you live by.
.
You can tag a friend if you like but it’s not a requirement.
.
This is just a simple giveaway of a book, its not connected or associated to Instagram in anyway and they do not endorse it or sponsor it or administer it, and I release them from anything to do with it, it’s simply me giving a book away.
.
I will choose someone at 11pm GMT Sunday 25th November 2019 based on the quote I like the most and let you know in a DM.  I will post the book free of charge to your chosen address 👊🏻⚔️🦁 link to book in bio ❤️

She drew that with a pencil. ✏️✍🏻 it’s often mistaken for a photograph but it’s literally just a pencil. Unreal skill ✍🏻 #artist #pencildrawing #pencilart #redhair
That would be why I’ve got a sore neck today 👍🏻

Woooooo! George in all his glory has arrived at @officialbrownthomas! And would you LOOK at that display. I am well and truly spoilt and hashtagblessed (seriously getting a mannequin is a big deal and now I have three and a whole wall. Spoilt ROTTEN!) Thank you for all the love you've shown for The Merrion so far and the early purchases (like literally scarves straight out of the box today as soon as the delivery arrived 😂) This print was a little different to others as it was entirely a little made up story in my head but it was sooo much fun to completely absorb myself in that little magical Georgian world of writers and lions 🦁 And thank you as always to the incredible team at @officialbrownthomas, they are genuinely just the loveliest, most supportive and encouraging bunch of people and such an absolute pleasure to work with. So there you go, if you are lusting after a bitta George I would encourage you to pop in store for the full Brown Thomas festive experience, otherwise pieces can be purchased over the phone (ask for the Marvel Room) and the scarves, cushions and pocket squares should be online in the next couple of weeks! 🦁🦁🦁 Swipe for the full range!.

Imagine you are where I am here at this moment in time? How scared do you think you would be? Surfer or not. I wanted to be here, regardless of being scared, all big wave riders do.  I had been surfing here for several years at this point, I was well prepared for this. In order to fully commit to charging big waves we have to commit on so many levels beyond the eyes of the onlookers, beyond the lens of the camera.  Unless you have been standing where I am in this shot you will never know the thoughts and feelings that pulse through our veins and mind for days in advance.  Going from wondering why the fuck am I doing this then to frothing like a caged animal with hunger for it. From excitement to sheer terror, the mind and heart feeling very alive. The things we deliberately put ourselves through in order to do this are often mistaken for insanity. .
I stepped off my board seconds after this shot as I had misread the wave. I got beaten so violently that I cracked my glass fibre helmet in the process. I surfaced with blurred vision, very little hearing and disorientation. My partner Paul couldn’t see me when I surfaced because there was so much froth. I wore the next wave  head on too. My mates @duncanscottsurfing and davey lavelle were running safety and came to get me. Now how scared would you feel at this point in time? I was pretty well rattled but I knew this was the last swell of the winter, I had one chance to face being scared head on so I went on two more waves. I didn’t for a second consider anything else as an option. Otherwise I faced a potential 6 months pondering that beating and not getting back on the horse right away. .
As you can probably see I have a very good understanding of fear panic and anxiety, so much so I wrote a book about it. The chapter number 17 is called Back on The Horse Fear for anyone that is interested and the link is in my bio above.

Thought I'd pop up an old shot of the ginger giant @al_mennie at Mullaghmore from a day that had so much carnage it got the name "The Mullaghmore Massacre". Check out the small wave breaking in front of him showing how shallow this full moon tide was...
