Well Worth The Ride!

Andrew Pacholyk Author Interview

Barefoot: A Surfer’s View of the Universe tells your adventurous true story and shares the lessons you learned along the way. Why was this an important book for you to write?

This particular book blended my love for surfing and the sea with the life lessons it has provided me. It was also threaded with a tale of how my dance career enhanced my love for surfing by taking me all over the world. It was the perfect marriage of a passionate career with an instilled joy for a sport that is just as fleeting as my profession. Well worth the ride!

What is one piece of advice someone gave you that changed your life?

We don’t have to end up anywhere near where we started.

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

  • No matter where you come from, or whatever your dreams, you can achieve them, if you are passionate, persistent, and resilient.
  • We have to trust the Universe and follow our instincts.
  • There is wonder and magic, everywhere. We just have to pay attention.
  • The only obstacles in life are the ones we create.
  • Do not underestimate the power of forgiving yourself.
  • How following your heart is the best advice you can give yourself.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your memoir?

That they realize there is a little bit of themselves within this book. It may not necessarily reflect their passion or career, but the message is Universal. The lessons I’ve been given in life, from my mentors, are little gems, which can be applied to anyone’s life.
