|Synopsis||Rise Above is a powerful story about hope and a unique man who has found a way to rise above his own challenges and traumas and in the process inspire so many others to follow in his footsteps. In January 2015 Damien Rider and his prone paddleboard began a marathon journey that he hoped would take him to the shores of Sydney's Bondi Beach -- a distance of 800 kilometres.
It was considered to be too great a challenge for even the most accomplished athletes -- and Damien was a relative novice to the event. But Damien wasn't like anyone else, he wasn't chasing record glory and fame, he was out there for very personal reasons to help him conquer past demons. For 17 days Damien was out there alone and battled with the elements - the monster seas, violent storms and hungry sharks, yet somehow, against all odds, he made it to Bondi Beach. From the moment he dragged his board up onto the sand of this iconic beach he knew that his life would never be the same again.
