I interviewed writer Jamie Brisick a while back for Whalebone Magazine
. I’ve collaborated - and shared ocean time - with Kassia Meador. (She even took the photograph that’s on the “wave” cover of AllSwell notebook #2
.) So, I really enjoyed listening to Jamie in conversation with Kass on The Surfer’s Journal
Kassia is the real deal. One of the most gifted longboarders on the planet, she lives her truth and you can feel it when you’re around her
. Even though I’m fortunate to call Kassia a friend, it was inspiring to hear her speak about her journey as an athlete, an artist and healing herself from multiple traumatic brain injuries. Miz Meador continues to forge new pathways, and she also makes my favorite wetsuits
- warm, flexible, dependable and beautiful. Come to think of it, all those adjectives are attributes of Kassia, too. Tune in at the link.
