Duct Tape Surfer is the heart-warming story of the late Pascale Honore, a wheelchair bound free spirit whose lifelong dream was to surf with her sons Tom & Morgs. Thanks to a mate and a roll of duct tape, her dream came true and Duct Tape Surfing was born! Pascale’s story went viral, sending her and surfing partner Ty Swan on a wild adventure around Australia spreading their message of kindness, hope and ability, with documentary filmmaker Mark Tipple following their story much of the way. It is a reflective journey that not only celebrates Pascale Honore’s life and impact she had on the world, but shows human vulnerability as feelings of grief and regret are explored leading to self discovery.
