The passion to surf has been the driving force and determination in Mark (Mono) Stewart's life.

Surfing has kept me alive and kept me inspired — it’s good for the body as well as the soul. It’s such a leveller. You can surf with people and they don’t even realise you’ve got one leg until you get out of the water. I had a young boy come up to me in Indonesia not long ago who told me "if I ever lose a leg, I want to surf just like you". It was like "wow" that's pretty heart-wrenching stuff.
