The Captain Liz Clark Interview
With the release of her incredible book SWELL, Liz Clark and I sat down to chat about hard work, manifesting your wildest dreams, her favourite books, who inspires her, what advice she has for others, & how she has struggled with her femininity.
Now if you’ve been living under a rock the past year and haven’t heard of Liz, she is someone I guarantee you will want to follow. Captain Liz Clark has been sailing the Pacific singlehanded on her 40ft sailboat named SWELL, since 2007, in search of waves, new places and people.
A talented surfer, conscious human, and powerful beyond words in her pursuit of adventure, she wrote an incredible book of her journey called Swell: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening.
It is a wonderful story of a woman trying to find her way in the world. And of course, lots of sailing and surfing! More than ten years, 20,000 miles, countless adventures, and one cat later, she’s still out there.
Liz Clark’s book SWELL: A Sailing Surfer’s Voyage of Awakening inspired me (Alexa) to also sail across the Pacific Ocean and send 4 months of 2019 on a boat. I. AM. A. CHANGED. HUMAN (for the better, of course… thanks Liz!).
