This Ocean Life, Episode 30 - Ryan Levinson and An Adaptive Life in the Water

In Episode 30 we speak with Ryan Levinson, a legend in the water who reached incredible levels of success beyond what most of us would dream about -- all while battling Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Ryan shares his story of being diagnosed with MD and the path he set for himself to push beyond any limits in the ocean as member of US Sailing Team, scuba instructor, director of EMS/Rescue for the Big Wave World Tour, kiteboarder, and more. Ryan shares an inspiring and positive perspective on adopting new ocean activities as his MD progressed, continually finding solace and flow in the ocean, and living in the Tahitian waters on his sailboat. I'm humbled to have had Ryan spend time with me and am beyond inspired by him -- you will be too.

Thanks for sharing Ryan's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of Ryan on his Facebook page, Instagram page and epic YouTube Channel, Two Afloat.
