Imagine paddling solo, 800km for 17 days, in the most shark-infested summer Australia has ever seen. Skateboarding 4000km for 56 days along the length of Route 66, through the scorching Mojave Desert (at 55 degree heat) for 24 hours non-stop. Both being made into movies – The Heart Of The Sea, and Rise Above. Completing all of these challenges after being told it was impossible.
Damien shares with us how one can get to a point where your body shuts down before your mind is ready to stop, and all for a reason much bigger than the challenges themselves. Other ‘World Firsts’ and World Records include, running a marathon carrying a 36lbs mattress, Live streaming his entire marathon run and even riding a 1950s rickshaw 180 miles. All to show the world why you should never give up, why you should never give in!
