follow the steps
step 2: DISCUSS
step 3: SELECT ACTIVITY
Some suggested questions to ask after you watch the video:
It wasn’t the competition that drove Chris, but rather the free surfing. He found he was more driven when he was having fun. What drives you (in general or a specific activity)?
According to Chris, kids who used drugs didn’t seem focused on anything but having a good time. He had a good time with surfing and didn’t see the need for drugs. How do you have a good time in a healthy way?
Chris also said that when you surround yourself with people that make drugs a lifestyle, it affects your life. Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not?
It wasn’t a decision to not do drugs for Chris, it was simply prioritizing what was important to him. What are your priorities and how do you keep them as your focus?
Surfing led Chris to film and designing surf boards and clothing. What have you fallen into that interests you, that you weren’t expecting? Discuss how it happened.
