In Episode 32 we speak with Jeff Denholm, an inspiring man of the water who moved beyond the loss of his arm to push himself further than ever in the ocean and life. Jeff shares his story of humble roots in the waters of the US East Coast, finding his passion for raw, heavy ocean off Alaska, and the harrowing tale of losing his arm at sea. We hear of Jeff's focus on surfing and prone board paddling while developing new prosthetic technology that allow him to continue to push his limits in the ocean. Jeff shares an inspiring perspective on helping to build a more sustainable world through his work with Save The Waves, Patagonia, and his own company developing environmentally friendly flame retardant.
Thanks for sharing Jeff's ocean life with us. You can find pictures and video of him on Instagram and Facebook pages. You can also find good stuff on the ThisOceanLife.TV Instagram and Facebook pages. We are also on Twitter ranting about anything cool happening in the ocean.
