When Garrett was 32 he gave up his dreams of surfing professionally. He was so miserable driving to a regular job everyday so he wrote down his goal and everything he had to do to make it happen. At the top of the paper he wrote “keep surfing “! To do that he knew he had to win the Jaws World Cup. He trained and trained and focused and when the day came he and his partner, although nervous and scared, managed to win 1st place. That was enough to quit his job and go back to surfing full time.
