Rik "Ebilgarr" Bennett is one of the heroes, born with complications in one of his legs which resulted in it having to be amputated at the shin, Rik has gone on to become a renowned big wave rider and who also has a taste for climbing up the face of mountains such as Everest and Ben Nevis. (Did I mention that his preferable method is up the face of the mountain with a couple of pick axes to er "aid" his climb!) I asked Rik what made him get into it? I briefly mentioned that I surf... badly...and then made the excuse (i mean seriously i'm making excuses in front of this man) that i got into it a bit late *felt stupid as soon as i opened my mouth :-/ ... He simply said "to prove everyone wrong". Well mate, you certainly did!!!!
So... my part of the story is. I get to airbrush his carbon leg!!!!!!!! Yessssss!!!!! So watch this space and i'll keep in touch xxx
