Ride The Wave

August 3, 2015

An interesting piece in the New York Times talks about the genetics of dare devils, and how risk takers and thrill seekers are driven by their DNA. “In essence, the findings suggest that some people might have an innate, inherited need to turn to risky activities to reach ‘their optimal level of arousal.'”  The Australian motorbike stunt rider, Robbie Maddison springs to mind. The guy surfs the world’s heaviest waves on a dirt bike. It’s mind blowing, thrilling, and stomach churning to watch.
