DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

Some suggested questions to ask after you watch the video:

Question #1:

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)?

Question #2:

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?

Question #3:

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?

Question #4:

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?

Question #5:

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.
