I have no background in surfing but I have read the biography of Tom Curren and have found it to be very inspiring indeed. I would encourage surfers and non-surfers to look at him as an example of how hard work and determination can take you to great heights in life. I will make sure to read other articles about him from now on.

This truly shows that with faith in God there is no obstacle that you cannot conquer. Tom Curren was gifted with skills in surfing and he used it for the glory of God. A lot of christians can learn from his example.
