Nils Mango: I Failed 800 Times

I'm finally at the tipping point in nicotine's vicious withdrawal cycle. The cravings are beginning to fade. I'm starting to feel a little healthier and a lot smugger. I'm entering that Preachy Phase that everyone goes through when recovering from addiction. Like I suddenly figured out some shit, and everyone else needs to know.

Nils Mango provided me with some excellent fodder for my newfound vocation as a motivational life coach. Previously featured here for his music with Borderlands Granular, today Nils offers us all an excellent demonstration in perseverance. He failed exactly 800 times in his attempt to ride a Wakesurf Hydrofoil. He picked himself up, and made the attempt 800 times; to ultimately fail 800 times.

His inspirational efforts are rewarded at around 7:55. Keep pumping the hydrofoil you want to conquer!

Video Description:

Watch me fail exactly 800 times before succeeding at foil pumping one lap.

Turns out not everybody is Kai Lenny.
Hydrofoil pumping is hard!

Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.

Just remember you can have anything but any form of nicotine. This is the period where you are building your separation gap between now and then. So don't feel bad if you reward yourself, keep yourself distracted, the human brain is far easier distracted than we sometimes feel.

This video is awesome.
Learning to foil on dead calm water from a dock is like learning to play music on a euro rack without instructions.
Towed by boat or e-foil is SO much easier to learn.
