Joining Sarah Grynberg this week is professional surfer and author of Against the Water, Owen Wright, who on the same day as a victory, suffered life-threatening brain trauma under the power of waves at Pipeline, Hawaii.
Within moments, he went from the top of his athletic game to someone who had to relearn walking and talking.
In this inspiring chat, Owen and Sarah discuss his extraordinary journey of recovery, how he defied all odds to return to elite surfing, his complex relationship with his dad, the mindset that propels him forward, and his profound insights gained while facing extreme adversity.
