There are no limits to the indomitable nature of the human spirit and this woman is an embodiment of that sort of inspired adventurism.

Dr Alf brings us a true human interest story, which will hopefully have a happy ending, with this woman writing a best selling book, becoming famous, inspiring young people and bringing color to otherwise mundane existences.

The dangers posed by 100 foot waves, deadly currents, unexpected storms and the possibility of being devoured by sharks in a feeding frenzy either make this woman mad or if successful, a clever risk taker. Let’s hope and pray it is the latter.
