Surfing to success at TEDx Dublin with Easkey Britton

Irish surfer Easkey Britton gave an impassioned talk at the TEDx Dublin a few days ago, been reading it on Twitter and delighted it's online now.

Her love for surfing has taken her to the giant waves of Tahiti but also to teach the freedom of sport to girls in Iran. In the talk she says our fear of failure can dampen creativity but by taking chances in the waves we can learn how to let go.

"We learn by doing, we learn by failing. Surfing teaches us to keep calm ... we have to learn to relax," she said.

It's Wednesday, hump day for lots of people but this will give you some motivation as you face into the rest of the week.
