Floating: The Nathan Gocke Story

Saturday, March 29 2008 started off like every other Saturday for thirty-two year old surfer Nathan Gocke. But it was a day his life would change forever as a surf accident left him without feeling from the chest down. Nathan was quadriplegic but his spirit was not paralyzed. Nathan's increasing strength, and pivotal encounters with key individuals along the way, helped crystallize one simple thought in his mind. He would one day surf again. Nathan's journey is a declaration that we can endure and overcome.
