A Word to the Wise: Don't Ruin a Long Run the Way I Did

Words That Move You . . .

"I try never to be stopped by my fears . . . because I'll tell you what — I'm always scared."
Maya Gabeira, in December 2008 of Women's Health

Brazilian-born Gabeira moved alone to Hawaii at age 16. Her goal, to break into tow surfing, which means riding waves to big to paddle into — waves that are five stories high. Last fall she surfed the Tahitian wave Teahuppo with surfing greats, like Laird Hamilton, who you might know as Mr. Gabby Reese. She was the only woman out there. Surfing fashion giant, Billabong, awarded Gabeira the XXL Women's Best Performance for 2008. Obviously this lady surfs her talk.
