    1. That is FASCINATING! I don’t know that I could give up wine/beer, though. But now I want to find a deep pool to try that swimming workout… it sounds intense!

    2. Luckily (if Laird Hamilton is being honest with the LA Times) we have a few more years to drink alcohol if we desire to follow his lead exactly! BTW the reference to Paul Chek is worthy of a follow-up. My father obtained Chek’s treatise more than ten years ago. It intrigued me enough that I needed my own copy (that is also where I learned initially about the Yiquan philosophy).
