In a culture that seeks to place men in a predetermined category, Bear Woznick defies easy classification. A rare combination of serious adventure seeker, husband, father and devout Catholic, Bear’s creed, “the most radical thing you can do in life is to abandon yourself to the wild adventure of God’s will,” dynamites an opening in people’s souls to the possibilities that God has for them.
As a World Champion surfer, certified Ninja Black Belt, creator of the reality TV series Long Ride Home and all around adventurer, Bear’s life message transparently communicates the thrills and spills of a life lived in the quest of abandonment to God. His life inspires people to rise to the unique challenge and purpose that God has for them in every dimension of their lives.
Men and women want a challenge. They want an adventure and they want meaning. Throughout his use of media – writing, blogging, reality TV, radio features on the virtues, his talks and his show The Bear Woznick Adventure – Bear inspires people to a high calling as well as a weightiness of purpose that gives them traction to lead by example those that God has called them to serve.

When you are surfing you have to paddle out and then you wait. There is something extraordinary about that waiting. While floating you are held by this greatness, this power. We are waiting but not alone. We are suspended, held and embraced all at once….by God. Father Eric Cadin joins me this week to discuss how surfing and the ocean symbolizes Christianity.
