Wow. Hope inspires.  It's worth reading the English subtitles.  It's funny, it's moving, it's for you.

15 years ago this month my friend Shimizu passed away after surfing a typhoon swell. At 25 years old, he laid down on the beach after surfing, and never woke up again.  Someone noticed at dusk that he wasn't moving.  Heart failure. Who knew?

My fin broke on my longboard, so today I took out Shimizu-san's board his mom gave me after he passed. Paddle on.  I like to surf alone.  Today I surf with the spirit of Shimizu.

"Ease & Grace. Ease & Grace,"  I chant paddling through the typhoon swell waves. Today I release all expectations.  I haven't been strong lately. Just enjoy the moment. 
I pull out early.  Why?  Dang, I coulda had that easily. Let it go. 
In the moment. Releasing expectations. View of quicksilver across the water.

Paddle in the wave.  I hear my surf coach Dominic C. Gonzales, "Stay low and grab the rail turning in."   He's in my head, great coaching sticks with you regardless of location.

"Yee-haw!" I holler out.  Yes, I might be the most un-cool surfer in the world, covered head to toe to avoid sun and jellyfish, but I grin and enjoy the moment.  Just for myself--I surf alone. 

Paddle out again. I feel the spirit of Shimizu.  I'm surfing for you.

Do you brush your teeth?  There's algae in toothpaste.  Clean the ocean to keep your teeth clean.

Wanna make a world of difference?

Cesar Harada, TED Senior Fellow, is already making a world of difference with his invention created to clean up the BP oil spill. Now he's measuring and aims to clean up radiation in Tohoku.
I don't have $100,000 to give him for Research & Development, but I do have a vote for the Mazda Rebel Grant.
Now we can support him, help him get a grant from Mazda for $100,000! That's a complete game changer!
